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.

Keep your Head up Video - Feb 18, 2012

Listen to the words of this song by Andy Grammar Song Titled "Keep Your Head Up.'
The words take on a whole new meaning to me with cancer than ever before. I love how that happens. The funny thing is that the words say "Keep your head up and let your hair down." and I have no more hair to let down. Ha ha ha. Irony is a crazy thing. The other things he sings are " the rainbow always comes after the rain" and "I know it's hard sometimes, but just try to keep your head up." It's a happy little song

Jesus said " Your Father knows the things you need before you ask Him. Matthew 5:6 I think that song was made for me to listen to again tonight and that in His supreme plan it was ordained. I am keeping my head up even though I have no hair to let down. I hope you can do better than me. Ha ha ha
