Fighting the Big C

Usually I do a blog post around the second week of the month, but this month has brought all sorts of craziness I never anticipated. I was diagnosed with cancer.

Now before anyone gets too upset, it's very early and very treatable. My doctor was hopeful it would only take one surgery to be done with it, but unfortunately that wasn't the case. I've now been through two surgeries in less than three weeks (plus my son had surgery in there too). In a few months I'll have a round or two of radiation. And then, if everything goes as planned, I will be cancer free! But this has been a trying month energy-wise, so the blog post is rather short. Going into the busiest time of year for me while down significantly on energy isn't so much fun. But it could be much, MUCH worse, so I have no reason to complain.

Cancer didn't know who it was dealing with! Let the fighting begin!

The Eastside Dream Elite cheerleading program is associated with Bellevue Parks, Mercer Island Parks, Renton Parks, Kirkland Parks, Issaquah Parks, and the Ballard Boys & Girls Club. Try-outs are not required for any EDE teams, and all teams are non-competitive except for Red Squad.  We work hard to keep costs low for EDE participants.  Scholarships for class fees are available from the respective organizations for residents who qualify.  Uniform fees are not covered by those scholarships, however we make every effort to help those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate.
