My name is Jason Gadsby, a husband, a father and a Disabled Veteran. Earlier this year, my beautiful wife, Niki, was diagnosed with Stage III Triple Negative breast cancer at the age of 30 years young. We have 2 beautiful boys for whom we both work, day in and day out, ensuring they will lead happy lives with both parents present.
Being a parent with a disability is hard enough, but it is especially trying when both parents are down. Niki is an exceptional fighter, a true mom and the love of my life. As of this writing, we have two more chemo treatments before we head to surgery. I say "we" because she will NEVER be alone in this.
Everyday is a struggle for us, from the lack of sleep with a 3 year old and a 1 year old, to having to remind each other to take our pills, but that's what we have each other for. We know we are not out of the woods yet, but we try to be as positive as possible in the face of uncertainty.
I write this mainly to share a little bit of us with you all, and in return I only ask that you pray for my lovely wife. The pic I provided is the day she had her power port placed for chemo and such. It was her first surgery, but I coached her through. (Up to 9 surgeries myself, so almost a pro). Thank you all and good luck in your journeys to survivorship!!!
