I have some personal news I’ve been waiting to share with you all. Less than two weeks ago I had a mole removed on my left chest and the lab results came in this last Monday. Invasive melanoma skin cancer. It was pretty distressing news especially for someone who lives health and fitness. Good thing is they said it was very early stages and shallow. In my follow up the doctor checked everywhere and found another spot they didn’t like on my calf that came back ‘abnormal’. So I have two separate minor surgeries coming up so they can ‘cut the margin’ on both my chest and calf. I’ll be stitched up and left with scars. I’ll have to get checked every 3 months for a while and then yearly for the rest of my life. I am thankful we caught it early and it all seems manageable. My first operation for my chest is coming up Feb 21st. I had plans of competing several times this year. Depending on how my stitches feel I still have June in my sights. I want to ask you all to please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I know God put me on this Earth for a reason and it’s not my time. I want to thank my family and friends for their loving support.
