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.

I had chemo yesterday - Feb 23, 2012

I had chemo yesterday. My friend Luann brought me home and stayed till 6:00. She was so sweet to help with the housework and get me caught up on things. I was tired all day, but never slept and now after going to bed at 11:30, I have been up for quite a while now and it's 2:45 a.m.  yesterday Mark took me to the oncologist office and stayed home until 2:00 p.m. Dad and Denise came an took some of the kids till 6 and then every one ate a yummy meal that my freind Dede brought and then they all went to church leaving me to read and watch some TV. Today I will go in for my shot which causes pain in my bones and makes it difficult at times to get normal things done. That's about it for today, I'm gonna try to get some more sleep.

Have a great day
