Family Roles

In every family, people fill different roles. My family have always been there when needed and our new situation has caused them all to step up and take on new roles and responsibilities. I wanted to highlight some of them as an additional way of acknowledging them and all that they do.

Al – The Chief Organizer

White boards, medicine books and planners, oh my! Al is the most organized of all of us and keeps everything straight. I would literally be lost without him.

Nancy (Mom) – The Food Coordinator

Mom has taken over as head chef and what she says goes. She has me on a diet with special food throughout the kitchen that is only for me (no one else can touch it!)

Tony (Dad) – The Enforcer

Everyone needs someone who helps to keep them in line and for me during this cancer journey is my wonderful dad! He is not only a great person to hang out with on a low-key evening but is also there to warn me that I might be pushing myself a little too hard.

Diane + Dave

No one can offer support like a sister and I have a couple great ones. I have stolen her husband Dave as my secretary to take notes during my appointments and he has been running errands and keeping me company since the beginning of all of this. I cannot thank them enough for everything that they do.

Tracey the Masseuse

My glorious leg and foot massager and friend. Thank you! THANK YOU!!

About The Author

A few months ago, I was told that my boobs are trying to kill me and being misdiagnosed for two years allowed them to recruit throughout the rest of my body by way of my spine. Before this, I knew f*ck all about cancer. Now, between sipping chemo cocktails, I want to talk about the truth of living with Stage 4 Breast Cancer with my support system and people I have met along the way to recovery.
