this will be a perfect match

I am a big tennis fan. I love to play tennis and follow the professional game. I took this photo two years ago. Joe and I went down to Cincinnati to see Federer play. It was a thrill to see a professional match in person.

Now that I am through my first chemo treatment I'm decided to score this match. Me vs. cancer. Of course, cancer isn't going to get a point. I'll take the first 15 and cancer is stuck with love.

Right now it seems like it is going to take forever to beat cancer. I often feel overwhelmed at what is ahead this year. I am not a patient person but I can be patient if that means that I will live.

Chemo made me very tired and sick to my stomach. I have been under a delusion that this treatment might be easier than expected. I didn't realize that we are going to need some more help to get through these next few months. I feel so grateful to everyone who has helped us so far. I know that people are praying for our family. That means a lot to me. Keep the prayers coming. We are going to need them.


  1. I am rooting for you :) You have spunk!

  2. Let's just pretend Roger was wearing pink in support of breast cancer patients!
    You're going to win this battle 6-0, 6-0!

  3. To quote Kellie: "Cancer picked the wrong person to mess with!".
    You have one treatment down. I know you can do it.
    We are praying for you and we are here for you!

  4. Oh, you're totally going to kick cancer's a**. I doubt it will score a point against you.
