Cancer Sucks Update #7

Cancer Sucks Update: So it’s been a while since my last post, mostly because there were some pretty tough days in there to get over. But there were some good and great ones too, fun with visitors, a trip to the Mayo, and my dad came home again for a couple of days.

Cancer Sucks Update #3



Cancer Sucks Update: So I’ve discovered two new lumps in my left breast. It could be the same cancer continuing to spread, or a second entirely different kind. Cancer: The gift that keeps on giving! 😜

So I will be getting those biopsies done shortly and make a separate medical plan according whatever results turn out to be. Bring it on, baby.

But DAY 1 of CHEMO DONE! It was an 11-hour day with *11* really fun poke-attempts to get the IV right, plus a mammogram (yay, boobie pancakes) and ultrasound, but it was great to get treatment started. Even made a great new chemo buddy!

I am so thankful for everyone who has contributed to helping me get through this. From the rides and donations, to the meals and positive vibes, it has all made a world of difference for my whole home. ❤️

Next post I believe we will discover how I look without hair. 😳

For those asking me about a goFundme Page, VantagePoint Marketing setup a donation page for anyone interested, including a monetary donation form and a meal donation sign-up form. Thank you for the many offers to help us through this! www.rockyfights.com

Cancer Sucks Update #1



We can all agree, CANCER SUCKS.

It’s getting harder to find anyone whose life hasn’t been affected by cancer. In this particular instance, cancer has hit hard on the home of a single mom, business owner, and co-founder of Flags for Fort Snelling.

The week before Thanksgiving, Rocky Borchardt (age 37), was diagnosed with Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer. Taking the next five days to get personal and professional affairs in order, Rocky was able to ensure smooth running operations before heading in for her sudden and massive surgery. Her whole “oven” was removed, along with a few other moving parts the cancer cooties had already taken hold of. Unfortunately, the doctors weren’t able to get it all, and some super chemotherapy is scheduled to begin just as we ring in the 2019 New Year.

Rocky is a single mother of an incredible daughter, Emma (age 14), and also provides a home and support for her youngest brother, Conor (age 18). They both are excelling at Blaine High School, and are keeping busy while Rocky focuses on her fight. She is so thankful to be surrounded by a truly amazing support system to help take care of her family and home. Still, medical bills are mounting, along with the financial struggle that comes with having to take such large amounts of time away from work.

If you are able to donate to Rocky’s fight, every dollar will help ease the need while she focuses every ounce of energy into beating this aggressive disease. And she WILL beat it!

If you’d rather help by whipping up a delicious meal for the family, please check out the Meal Train below and sign-up at your convenience. These meals are dropped in a cooler at her front door, make a huge difference and give them great big smiles every time they dive in.

Every DOLLAR, every MEAL, and every POSITIVE NOTE makes a difference to Rocky and her family! Also, Rocky personally asks for any positive messages, vibes, and energy to keep being sent her way: She counts on that energy to keep her going every day.
