I'm counting on that hug ... and soon! :-)


I believe.

YOU are an amazing woman, proven time and time again. We're here for you even when you don't know how to express yourself, even when you can't explain away the lack of alligators on the ark and especially when you need us to support your breasts (ha!). Hugs, love, prayers and good thoughts are here for you today and in your journey ahead.


I logged onto Twitter this morning to check in on you and immediately went to the Frozen Pea Fund site. Good grief I am just a basket case from seeing the site and all that is there.

I know in my heart that all will be well today for you. (I've also consulted my Magic 8 Ball and it says the same thing!)

Much love,



I'm thinking of you, prayers are with you. You're such an amazing woman, you've given me so much inspiration by just being you. Thank you.

PS The alligators swam under the ark ;).


Consider yourself hugged back, Susan! My thoughts are with you today.


Susan, my family's thoughts are with you this morning. We know all too well what you're going through as both my wife and Mother went through the very same thing.

Stay strong and feel the faith, love and warmth that only God, family and friends can provide. We'll be thinking of you and wish you and your family the very best of outcomes.



P.S. - I've bookmarked this blog now so I can check back to see how you're doing. ;^)

Is it normal that the first thing one does when they wake up in the morning, is check on the health status of an online friend that they have never met? I think so. Even if it was odd, I would still do it, because I know that there is a very real human being behind the @ sign, who needs support in a difficult time. I'm thinking about you, Ms. Reynolds, and all the nice things you've tweeted to me, and how I know everything will be alright.

My thoughts and prayers are with you today!

I'm a PEAple, she's a PEAple, they're a PEAple, we're a PEAple, wouldn't you like to be a PEAple too?

I am praying for God to bless you Susan...I am proud of the fact that blogging helps me reach out to people all over the world...some right here in my own country. I wish you the best!

Yay Susan! Thanks for sharing your journey albeit icky at times (and your wonderful humor). Blessings.


We ALL believe. Hugs.

I've never met you, but I was thinking about you all day. So happy to see the lymph nodes results are good. I wish you smooth & speedy recovery, and hope to meet you in person someday.


I first heard your name this week, and yet today I was blogging about the good news in your surgery updates as if you were a close friend. Y'know, we're all God's children--so yes, you're a close friend. :-):-) Very, very best wishes to you and your family and friends!


PEAS to you, dear lady. Last Twitter update I've seen was 12 hours ago. Pins and needles...

The Story Begins

About My Cancer

  • Invasive Lobular Carcinoma
    My form of breast cancer is less common than others. In fact only about 6 to 8% of cases of breast cancer are the invasive form that is based in the lobules, not in the milk ducts.

    Invasive, sometimes called Infiltrating, is a scary word. In most cases this form of breast cancer has been present for 8–10 years when detected by a mammogram or physical exam.

    In my case there was clearly an area that felt thickened or dense on December 6, 2007. A mammogram the next afternoon was not able to detect it but it clearly appeared on ultrasound and was confirmed by multiple biopsies the same day.

    During those 8 to 10 years the cancer took to become apparent to me, there has been plenty of opportunity for those invasive cells to get out of the breast and spread to the rest of the body.

    It is after all, by definition, an invasive form of cancer.

    Each year about 190 thousand women are diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in the US and about 40 thousand women will die of the disease. The larger the mass is when discovered the more risk. Mine had tentacled almost 5cm into the surrounding tissue and two other areas in the breast were discovered as well.

    My chances of living another 10 years without cancer in another area are about 40%. The likelihood of one of my other underlying health conditions doing the job before that is 20%. it took a few months to get used to that idea.

    Now though my attitude is that at least I know what I'm facing. It's just not what I expected. Life changes in an instant.
