A Bit of Good News

We met with Dr. Havard, my oncologist, this afternoon. My Pet scan results showed no signs of additional cancer. It was nice to get a bit of good news...we are praising God that the cancer is contained in just the one location. My Dr. will be contacting UCSD Monday to consult them, regarding my chemo treatment plan. That way, when I get down to San Diego for treatment, it will be a smooth transition, with my new team of doctors being in the loop. I may get to start chemo as early as the end of next week.
I had mentioned to the Dr. that I wanted to start treatment asap because I hate the thought of the cancer being allowed to grow (since it has been about 1 month now since we started this process). He explained the rate cancer cells divide and grow and said that this cancer probably began 5-6 years ago! However, it would not have shown up on a mammogram until about 9 months ago (after it reached a certain size)-this was around the time  Bellen was born. That was very interesting!
So, beware, naughty, naughty, bad, bad, disgusting, dirty, weak little cancer...we are coming to get you and you will soon be NO MORE!


  1. I LOVE this post! I will continue to pray for you and your family Britton!!

  2. good news! I'm praying for you! and for Jason and the kids. I'm excited for you and your move to San diego... a little jealous too :) What an exciting opportunity!
    Praying for quick total healing!!

  3. Dr. Havard was my mom's oncologist when she was battling breast cancer. He was so good to her, as I'm sure he is to you.

    I'm praying for you all during this time. I'm all too familiar with your story (from the kids point of view, although I was a bit older than they are). If you ever need anything (not sure how much I can help, but I'm willing) :) Please let me know. (feel free to email me at:
