A little over a year ago I wrote a blog post about my dear friend Andrea who was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer.  So, I thought I’d give you a little update on how she is doing.

I’ve watched her fight this disease with remarkable strength and determination this past year.  I’m pretty sure chemo, radiation, and a mastectomy weren’t what she had in mind at the start of 2010, but she clung to her faith and put her trust in the Lord, and he brought her through it.  She is currently in remission and is doing really well.  She has one more surgery to go and then will hopefully be able to put all of this behind her.  Praise God!!!

If you’d like to read about her journey you can check out her Caring Bridge page here.

Last weekend, while I was in Orange County, Filipe and I were able to have breakfast with her and catch up for a little bit.

Here’s a picture of us:

 

Love you Andrea!
