Update on Leah Dowdy’s Breast Cancer Battle

The past two weeks have been a whirlwind for my daughter, Leah and her family.  Leah is my daughter who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  (You can read my initial account, My Daughter Has Breast Cancer.) We have all been amazed at the outpouring of prayer and support from so many people.  We are blessed to have so many dear friends.

Leah will soon undergo a double mastectomy and reconstruction followed by chemotherapy.  You might want to bookmark Leah’s journal for all updates.  Thanks to the folks at CaringBridge.org for making this possible.

Yesterday, I did a video chat with Leah and Caleb (her 4 year old son). Leah told me that she talked to Heath (her 8 year old son) about the changes that would taking place in their home.  She told him about the physical changes and the financial changes.  (Leah has been working as a nurse at the hospital where she will have surgery.)  Leah will not be working in the near future.  Heath responded by getting his piggy bank as a way of helping out financially.  He is such a wonderful little man.
