Requesting some big thoughts, prayers, good juju, or whatever you got for my cousin, Eileen Stewart!! She will be having her total gastrectomy tomorrow morning by the amazing Dr. Michael Kendrick at St. Mary’s Hospital/Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. I know she is in the best hands not only because he is rated the #1 laparoscopic surgeon in the world, but because of how well myself, my aunt, and another cousin are doing since our stomach removals!! She will be #4 out of 6 who have tested positive to have a total gastrectomy in our family.
Eileen has been nothing but positive throughout this whole journey and that will definitely be on her side throughout the recovery!! When I asked how she’s feeling, she just says she’s ready to get this over with. She’s a kind soul with the fight and bravery of a soldier and I know she will do well!!! Love you, girl, and keep that positive attitude flying high...always remember your why. 💜💜💜

I love everything about this!!! I dream that one day this will be a norm for everyone....testing for mutations in order to be preventative if they so wish!
