Denise P. Smith was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer on 11/3/2010. Now an MRI showed spots in her brain. Lets support Denise!!
A dedicated Mom of two beautiful girls, Denise continued working as a dietician and being an active mom through much of her chemotherapy. At some point, the effects of the chemo were just too hard on her, and she had to leave her job and friends at the hospital. She still keeps in touch with many of those coworker friends, and attends Lunch and Learn events with them as well.
Denise will learn more next week about what to expect. This blog was designed as a means for keeping her friends and family updated throughout this journey, and as a forum for friends to provide support to Denise. Please feel free to leave words of love and support, as Denise will be checking the blog often.
I took Denise to dinner and movie tonight. She amazes me. She plans to fight hard. She is a great friend, a loving Mom, and just a good person in general. She has a trip planned to Arizona and has been so excited that she would be seeing her family. She has been looking forward to reconnecting with cousins. She is very proud of her daughers...Alyssa is a freshman living on campus at UNCG, and Danielle is in the 10th grade (she happens to be one of my daughter's very best friends...we call her my 'other' daughter). They need all the love and support we can provide - together, we can make a difference!
