I decided to start this blog (Journal) for a number of reasons.

  1. It gives family and friends a place to go for updates.
  2. It gives me a place to write down all the crap that is floating around in my head that deals with this situation.  If I write it down then I do not feel the pressure to try to remember everything that I need to retain in the memory banks.  I do not want to forget anything that may be important later on.  It also helps me to concentrate on other important life challenges, such as my job.
  3. It gives others that may find themselves in a similar situation a place to go for info.  We will probably post a message in the Susan G. Komen and other message boards at some point so that anyone that does a search looking for info on the same diagnosis will be able to find the link.
