Fall 2009: Jake and Nancy learned that Nancy's breast cancer was stage four. Winter 2013: They are still fighting. This is a gathering place to follow their story, offer support, love and prayers... to be by their side.

Hi everyone,

After 6 long months of weekly treatment, I am officially done with Abraxane and Avastin. Hooray! My mom joined me for the 5-hour marathon chemo trifecta on Thursday, which went fine. She snapped a photo from my iPhone to mark the big day. I have felt a little sick this weekend, but once I get back on my feet we will celebrate.

I have to say a quick thank you to Jake. I think it is harder to be the spouse than it is to be the patient and he has been amazing. He handled a lot of the really hard things these past 6 months, not the least of which was dealing with our adoption agency, who disqualified us based on my health. Losing our Nina has been the hardest part of this journey, but as he continually reminds me, "Our family is complete."

We have such a great family and such a great life. Thanks everyone for following along and for your continued love and support.
