Kim Whetstone was a contracts analyst and training consultant. Her greatest love, is experiencing new places and people. At 48 years old, she was diagnosed with Stage IIIA Breast Cancer (Poorly Differentiated Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (ER+, PR-, HER-2 is 1+)). At 50, she was told she was terminal. Six months later, the tests came back as “NED” (No evidence of disease) … for now. She lays no claim to being an expert on cancer; however, she has picked up a few things along the way: advocate for yourself, educate yourself, and (always, always, always) follow your own path. This website is an effort to help people find answers to questions they didn’t even know to ask. To gain the knowledge that will allow them to find THEIR path.
