Update October 11,2016

Thank you all so much for your prayers and words of encouragement these past few weeks leading up to my PET scan. I felt such joy and peace during this time and I know it was due to your prayers.

Today I had my dr. appointment and got my results. I was so hoping for a good report but it looks as if this road I'm on will take a new turn. Although the tumors in my breast are no longer present or an issue, the lymph node near my lung and now the one under my armpit on the left side have grown. This means that my course of treatment will be switched to a different hormone suppressing drug combination. I'm not sure yet what that will be as my Dr. would like me to head over to Vanderbilt in the next week or so and get their opinion on my treatment protocol. It was also mentioned today that I may want to look into immunotherapy which is currently being done at Memorial in NYC.

Would you please pray for us as we navigate these new waters. That doors would open where they need to open and close where they need to close. Please also pray for Scott and I as we process this disappointing news and all the emotions that go with that. We are weary from a long year and would love prayers for strength and peace. Thanks so much! Love to you all.

We listened to this song today and it sums up where I want my heart to be...

Be Still My Soul


  1. Oh Aimee.....I know how weary this cancer journey can make a person. Know that I am praying for your strength and for FULL healing. My daughter Grace, who does not know you personally but, knows this cancer journey personally, prays for you as only one who has walked this can. Sending so very much love to you and yours...... Eileen (Ownes) Doran and Grace

  2. Aimee, this is heavy and so hard. I love you and we are praying. I hope that as scary as this news is, your Father's care and provision for you is even greater, great enough to encourage you and sustain you. Our hearts are hurting with yours.

  4. Aimee, your spirit keeps my spirit up. I have been thinking now as I have often through our hard journeys, "Be still, and know that I am God." In the midst of the strongest storms, Jesus stands right up in that boat and says, "Peace, be still." He continues to love and keep us. "As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be." So much love, Mom

  5. He who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, he who watches over her will neither slumber or sleep. psalm 121

  6. Dear Aimee, lifting you up, with tears, and with hope. Praying for opened as closed doors, as you have asked. And for healing, always for healing. And strength and peace that passes understanding. Love you.

  7. Sending love as your healing journey continues.. The trees here are changing into rainbow fall colors. There is beauty in all things. Love to you, my friend.

  8. Aimee, I read this quote and it brought me hope in a situation we are going through: "Although it is possible the feared thing may occur, it is not probable that it will."
    In the Old Testament one of the names for God was El Roi - God sees. Aimee, He sees. With much love and prayers for peace and wisdom in our Lord and Savior's most precious name. Mary Anne Kavanaugh
