Well, hello. For anyone who does not know me my name is Katie Hennemuth. This is my blog ( so lovingly set up for me by my friend Julie) about my journey in dealing with Stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma and my tumor that I have named Dave. Giving my primary tumor a name has given me “someone” to be mad at and channel my energy toward. I KNOW I am going to beat Dave and every single hideous cancer cell that he has spread throughout my body. I have never been so sure about anything in my life. I feel that have been chosen for this journey and ya betta watch out Dave because me and my support system #teamkate are COMING FOR YA!
By way of introduction, I am 29, engaged to my AMAZING fiancé and I am a Neuro- Surgical ICU Nurse (NOT a writer so bear with me). The purpose of the blog is to share my experiences, the good the bad and the ugly, update friends and family, and hopefully help another cancer buddy along the way. In my short time as a cancer patient, I have learned the importance of talking to others dealing with this disease, in any way shape or form, and how incredibly helpful it can be. The outpouring of support, love, prayers and thoughts that I have received thus far is literally mind blowing. I feel LUCKY and that I must pay this experience forward in any way that I can. So if my stupid/silly/sad/mad/happy/insulting thoughts on my road to CURE can aid anyone, then my goal is reached. So here we go!!
