Amy Mickelson – Good News from Houston




“Good News from Houston” is the title of a recent post by Phil Mickelson on his website. Both Phil’s wife, Amy and his mother, Mary have undergone surgery for breast cancer in the past month. 

“Things are going well here in Houston and we should be home soon. My mom had surgery yesterday. She was very brave and everything went well. We should get her pathology in a week and we are all optimistic. It meant so much to me and Amy to be there with her. 

Amy is doing very well. The best news so far is that the cancer has not spread to the lymph nodes, which improves our chances of beating this in the short and long term. We’re awaiting one test result that will influence Amy’s treatment plan. The waiting and wondering sometimes can be the most difficult part but she has a very positive attitude and has handled all of this with her usual grace. I’m so proud of her. 

The kids were in Houston all week and I know that helped speed up her emotional recovery. They bring her endless joy. We could not have done this without the help of our family and friends. We appreciate everything they have done and continue to do every day. I don’t know what we would do without them. 

We continue to be overwhelmed with the support of our extended group of friends and family as well. The prayers, notes, articles, e-mails, texts, and packages get us through every day. We feel the support all around us. Our gratitude is hard to put into words.”
