My good friend Becky Woodring has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. This came as a huge shock to Becky and her family, as her husband had just recovered from testicular cancer in January 2016. They were finally able to enjoy life again, and were excited for what 2016 would bring. When Becky felt a lump, she got it checked the next day...and thank God she did, because it was indeed cancer. What we do know is that her prognosis is really positive, and we have no doubt she will come through this fight stronger than ever! The road ahead will be challenging, but nothing she can't handle, as she is by far one of the strongest, most amazing women you will ever meet, and with her rock Derrick by her side, they are unstoppable!

Everyone who knows Becky knows that she is kind-hearted, loving, thoughtful, positive, and hard-working. She would do anything for anyone, no matter what. When her husband went through his surgeries and chemo she was right by his side. She worked extra hours to make ends meet, was his home nurse, and took care of his every need, keeping a positive attitude throughout, and just powering through. Unfortunately, she is now the one who needs our help.

Becky will need a lumpectomy, radiation, lymph node removal, and 4-6 months of chemotherapy. She will be unable to work her job as a flight attendant during her treatment. Additionally, she and Derrick are still paying off medical bills from his cancer treatment.

We are reaching out to Becky's amazing and supportive network of friends and family to help in any way. Any donation is greatly appreciated and will be a huge help to Becky and Derrick during the next few months.

Thank you so much for reading and supporting Becky!

Hi everyone, I'm finally able to update!
Becky's drain is out and She starting to feel a little bit better. Surgery was harder than She anticipated, but she's extremely strong and now that part is behind her.
They have been waiting for all sorts of tests to come back to proceed with the game plan. Thank god she got the news today that her CT scan, bone scan, and some secondary tests have all come back CLEAR! Yay!!! Woohoo Her stage is 2B. Since the cancer had moved to her lymph nodes, that's the only thing that makes it stage 2 instead of stage 1 (2 of the 18 nodes they took came back positive).
The next step is 20 weeks of chemo, a combination of a couple types Which starts Dec 13th. Becky said her doctors have been so sweet and are working with her to make sure She still has hair for her brother's wedding on Dec 23rd. They also set it up so she won't feel crummy on Christmas . ❤️
Becky is relieved and ready to move on to the next step!
Thank you everyone, your prayers, love and support have been getting becky through this crazy time❤️
We love you Becky !!!

I just wanted to update everyone on what's going on with Becky...

First of all, thank you so much for All the love and support, kind words, generous donations and shares on Facebook! It has been shared 400 times! All of this has really helped Becky and she appreciates it more than you know

So far, the current situation is pretty much hurry up and wait. She has been to imaging and radiology appointments, fertility preservation appointments, seen radiologists and Shes met her surgeon and her team.

Dr. Jeruss at U of M is amazing, and they were able to get her scheduled for surgery on October 27th but they may move it up depending on if they get her pre-operative stuff done before then.

Becky said, this Dr is committed to a balance between aggressive treatment and helping to keep her life as normal as possible. So that's great!

Becky is staying positive , spending time at home and spending with her nephews.

Thank you all again!!! We will continue to update everyone.
