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 6, 2012 - Top 10 Things I Will Do Differently Without Hair

Yesterday with church and the super bowl and everything we didn't get to it and so we will tonight.

Top 10 things I will do differently without hair.

1. Use baby shampoo instead of Herbal Essence, Suave, etc.
2. Wear a cap, scarf or hat or a mixture of the items.
3. Consider wearing a wig to some events and activities.
4. Get more Vitamin D to that area of my body when outside in my backyard.
5. Not stress about the latest hair decisions in my life – Cut, dye and styling
6. Use even more lotion, as your skin dries out faster without hair.
7. Be thrilled that I do not have to shave my armpits or legs or worry about my bikini area either, especially in the summer.
8. Spend less money on styling products like mousse and hairspray and such.
9. Anticipate growth and usually it comes in differently so wonder will it come back straight? Or even a different color?
10. I will definitely sing “Oh where is my hairbrush? by the Veggie Tales with a totally new perspective. Ha ha ha

Tonight we are shaving it into a Mohawk and then we are shaving my entire head. I will take pictures or video and let you see soon. I can’t even image what I will look like without hair. Mark said “At least you have a good shaped head.” Ha ha ha – The things we say and hear in this house.
