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.

January 16, 2012 - The Acupuncturist

I went to an acupuncturist for 2 hours and she was amazing! She is right off Providential Rd. and the office is called Harmony Acupuncture. I loved her. I call her my little Chinese lady with needles. She taught me meditation things, poked needles here and there, and explained nutrition and several Chinese practices. I even got a nap in! I highly recommend her and I hope to be able to go often. I went home said a quick hi to the kids and grabbed Holly and we went to get my lab work done and then get my stitches out. There was a blister under the tape that had been where they put my IV port 2 weeks earlier. No biggie and scars are cool right? Then we went to my friend Bobbie’s house and visited for 3 hours and it was really good to talk to someone again about lots of feelings and emotions and process through things. After talking with Jenn during our pedi’s and Starbucks, I have a better perspective on a few things.
Blessings: Acupuncturist, friends, stitches out, my relationships with my daughters and the fact that every day is new.
