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 5, 2012 - It's Mowhawk Time!

I think we are going to video and take pictures of the process and let the kids help. They are all going to church at Bridgepoint again today and I will have to stay at home again. My WBC has to be higher before I can be out running around in public.
Tomorrow is a really big day as I have lab work, then a dentist appointment, then an app. with the holistic doctor and then possibly one with the ortho. doctor for my continued back pain since Dec. I have my driver Bobbie picking me up at around 7:00! What craziness! I don't know what I'd do without my sweet friends. I will try to figure out how to send info better since many frinds and family have trouble getting this. My mom for instance works at a school where she can't log on and she doesn't have a computer at home and so I'm considering doing a blog or caring bridge too.
Please pray everything goes o.k. with this hair loss issue. I never thought I'd have cancer and I hate the idea of losing my hair. Oh well, at least then I can say I've had dread locks and a bald head! Ha ha ha

February 18th I uploaded the picture:
