Judy, along with her husband Jeff, owns the
Living Waters Spa and Judy is a
breast cancer survivor -- here is her story...
In 1992 I
heard the words most women dread, “I’m sorry, it is cancer.”
Jeff and I were about to move 350 miles to a new job for him with our 4
children, ages 8-15. We all made appointments for routine physicals with
our familiar doctors before the big move. At my exam I asked my
physician whether or not I should get a mammogram; I was 38. He
hesitated but said okay. Later on the afternoon of the test I received a
call from him, saying there was something on the film, and he had made
an appointment for me to see a surgeon two days later. I naively was not
worried, and continued working toward our move, which by now was only 10
days away. Jeff wisely suggested we stop packing until we saw the
doctor. When we saw him he said he wanted to schedule a biopsy, which we
were able to do that coming Monday. In recovery was where I heard those
words, “I’m sorry, it is cancer.”
Those words caused our world to stop and we quickly became knowledgeable
about the disease. My path became a mastectomy and “tram
flap” reconstruction a month later, followed by 6 months of
chemotherapy. Jeff, my family and friends were wonderfully supportive.
Fast forward to the present time. I can proudly say that I am a
Survivor. I have been able to go along the journey with a number of
friends and guests as they dealt with the disease. There’s something
about the understanding you can only get from someone who has been
