Some of you know that prior to moving to Seattle, Kris was a polygraph examiner and a successful one at that. Her first 8 months here were spent pounding the pavement for any job after 15 years as an examiner. Even the week she was diagnosed with breast cancer in June of 2016 and all through her first and second surgeries, she continued to apply and interview for jobs.
Shoot! She administered her first polygraph in Port Angeles, WA on June 6, 2016 just hours after AFTER meeting with an oncologist for the first time!
In October of 2016, she began working as a case coordinator at a non-profit organization where she assists those who suffer with severe and persistent mental health illnesses. Three weeks into her new job, Kris began radiation therapy. She went to work every day and at the end of each day, rather than going home- Kris went for radiation treatment --and then home. Other than this past week due to her most recent surgery, Kris had not missed a single day of work! I still don't know how she worked through radiation.
Kris hasn't been with her employer for a year yet, so she's not eligible for FMLA or short-term disability- thus, every hour of PTO she's accumulated since she started has gone towards surgery.
We have no expectation (literally, zero). We will continue to crush ALL things cancer no matter what as well as pay forward all of the love, kindness, support, and generosity that we've been shown.
We love and appreciate all of you,
