My Story

I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Her2 positive breast cancer Dec. 27th, 2011. I had three large tumors in my left breast, I also had two positive lymph nodes and so with 5 positive biopsies I started my journey. In the beginning, it was a whirlwind and within a week, I was getting a port and preparing for chemo and the rush to save my life was on. Eight months later (August 20th) after stopping chemo (12 sessions) and not having surgery (a suggested double mastectomy) or radiation like my doctors wanted me to, I sat at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Illinois and heard the results of a mammogram, MRI, Pet Scan and blood tests were that they could find no cancer in my body. The nurses and doctors were baffled and no one could explain how I could have had this terrible cancer and it was now gone, except for me. I said the Lord healed me through prayers, education, diet and supplements. I started this blog when I was first diagnosed, it is not just about on cancer, but my life and day-to-day thoughts and activities. There are suggested websites, blogs, videos and more here that I believe can benefit those dealing with cancer and those who want to be preventative. My hope is that you and yours will learn, be encouraged and healed. My family prays every night for those with cancer and that you will be not only be healed but that you will live long and happy lives.

Love and Blessings on your journey.

February 3, 2012 - Amount of Meds and Help

I am seriously not making this up. I have 24 different meds! I am up and feeling a bit up pain and so I decided to look for my pain med. My daughter Holly who wants to be a doctor and kinda is at age 12 and has been since age 3 has stepped up as usual, and has taken over everything in order to help out her mom. I have 2 baskets of meds now. 1 is from the medical doctors and 1 is from my new holistic doctor. I am working hard to rest, which sounds easy for some but is such a pain for me.
Yesterday, I had many friends watching over me and my affairs. Brenda was on checking me and the kids, even taking the boys to get haircuts and giving baths, Bobbie was my driver,she took me to all my appointments and was with me all day, Beth went to another doctor for me, picked up my meds and explained a lot to us all, and Sue even sorted my socks and read to the boys. I even had Kelli drive Holly to and from piano lessons and Jesse drive Hayden to MDO and then she took Hudson to her house to play. So 6 women helped me out! I am so overwhelmed by the amount of help and love from the body of Christ! He is way too good to such an underserving person as me. Be thankful and appreciative for everything you have today, you never know what tomorrow will bring.
Much Love
