The Battle of the Mind | Update from Andrea

Radiation treatments began on February 27 — fairly painless except for the uncomfortable position I have to lay in for 20-30 minutes.  I have four small, freckle-sized tattoos on my chest marking the spots that must be lined up perfectly before beginning each treatment.   I have a custom-made mold for my upper body complete with […]

Chemo Complete! | Update from Andrea

  I know it has been several weeks since I’ve written an update.  I apologize for that–knowing that many of you are praying so faithfully for me and are so kind to inquire of my progress.  This last month has been the most difficult in terms of side effects.  Thursday, November 1st was my last […]

Emotions: The Cart, Not the Horse | Update from Andrea

 “For thou O Lord are a shield for me, my glory and the lifter of my head.” Psalm 3:3   My treatment weeks seem to go by slowly – just as my electric pump reminds me every 12 seconds – slow and steady.  Round four has officially begun.  We were thankful to get to the […]
