Megan’s Big Adventure

October 20, 2008


Breast Cancer at 37…

I’m not really sure where to begin or what to say.  It all feels a bit like I’ll be one of those cases where the doctor will call and say, “oops, my bad.  you’re ok after all.  we got your test results mixed up with someone else.”

But that is probably unlikely.  So with that in mind, I now just want to tell my story.  And surprisingly, it has been an amazing story so far.  Even through the tears, there’s been a lot of laughter, super abundant love, loads of miracles from God, and all of this good stuff has kept the scary stuff off to the side.  And I’m thankful for that!

Together we’ll make it a happy adventure, so thanks in advance for going along with me on this.

{The Photo} The above photo is dedicated to my super precious sister; it’s a bit of an inside joke and I can hear her laughing so hard when she sees it for the first time.  This photo was taken in 1987 during a family trip on the Skunk Train with our parents; I was in that horrible state of being a constantly annoyed teenager who was too cool for my family (notice I wouldn’t even smile at the camera) and my sister was doing her best to continually pester me.  Oh, can we just say hallelujah those days are long behind us!  I love you Amanda!

p.s.  I’m always happy to help and enjoy hearing from readers so please drop me an email if you’d like.  meg(at)mclouse(dot)com
