    Alexis,
    I dropped into your blog from Amy’s blog as she also battles breast cancer. You both are amazing! I cannot believe how positive you make everything seem. Good luck on your journey and I look forward to continuing to read your blog.

    Your friend of a friend,
    Corinne

      Ah, yes – so you’re Courtney’s friend! Thanks for tuning in. For the most part I try to stay positive, but trust me there are tears and moments of despair. Just can’t wait until this all over and done with! Alexis

    Alexis, I just found your blog and spent almost an hour reading through your posts. What an amazing, incredible, brave and yes, bubbly woman you are. I am so impressed with your spirit. And yes, you are definitely going to kick this cancer’s butt.

      Thanks! I just briefly checked out your blog and I see that you’re into running and all thing fitness related. That is fantastic – I’ll have to go back and read more. I’m trying to keep up with workouts and running through my treatments, but its been hard. I’ve definitely lost some of my physical strength and endurance. Thanks for finding me and offering some encouraging words!
