Three awesome boys call me mama, and I enjoy encouraging them to be adventurous and take risks. Cliff jumping into Lake Superior? Go for it! Teach yourself to do backflips on the lawn? By all means.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer on January 20, 2016; one month to the day after turning 40. I underwent a bi-lateral mastectomy with the first stage of reconstruction on February 25. In late July, I had the second phase of reconstruction and am now on a 10-year prescription to Tamoxifen (an estrogen inhibitor.) It has been a CRAZY year, but God is good. Always.
I live in Huxley, Iowa with my husband of almost 18 years, Corey, and our ever-growing man-children. You can find me on twitter at @kimharmsboymom.
