I’ve got some very good news for you today prayer warriors! First of all, my PET scan came back clear. This is HUGE! It means the cancer has not spread and this will greatly affect my prognosis and subsequent treatment.
Also, MD Anderson confirmed my appointment for next week! It is Wednesday, September 3rd at 7:00 a.m. Once my diagnosis of Inflammatory Breast Cancer was confirmed, they wasted no time getting me into their world-renowned IBC clinic. They only treat 100 patients a year with IBC, and I feel confident that I will receive excellent care there.
We will be leaving Tuesday morning and have been told that we will need to be there 5-7 days for this initial appointment. Patrick’s parents, Jerry and Carol MacNamara, have graciously offered to stay with the kids while we are in Houston. Please remember to pray for them and the kids, as well as Patrick and me this week. I know they’re going to be in good hands and they are excited to get to be with their Papa and Grammy, but I am going to miss them so very much next week.
So, so many of you have been helping us and offering to help us, and I am just in awe of the kindness that all of you have shown to my family and me. God has placed the most amazing people in our lives. Creed has been so loved and taken care of by the fabulous families at Conway Christian School. You guys are awesome! Maddie’s friends have reached out to us and have been very instrumental in helping us navigate the events of this week as well. There are no words to express our appreciation for all of you sweet, precious people. Thank you for loving us. We feel it!

Tina, I just heard the shocking news! Please know that you and Patrick, your kids, family, and doctors are all in my prayers. Praying you will have extra strength and energy while in Houston next week. We all know God can heal and will trust Him for that.
I’m will definitely be one of your loudest cheer leaders on Team Tina!!!
Please let me know if I can do anything to help. I’d jump in the car in a heartbeat and drive down.
Love you and praying for you dear friend.
