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 17, 2012 - I's a Crazy Life Rght Now

Things are getting crazy – the laundry, dishes and the kid’s schoolwork are all piling up. We are trying to plan everything from getting to piano lessons and laundry and this week is even more hairy with 2 birthdays and a anniversary. We are literally taking things minute to minute at times because there are times when I am just not in control of my body and what it does or doesn’t do. My friend Kristen came and took Hope so she could spend the night. I had Chemo in the morning and so what little girl wants her Mom to be gone at chemo all day while she hangs out with her siblings and dada works from home for a few hours and so they spoiled her and she had pizza a movie and even Ooh La La cupcakes! On Wed. They took her to the park to hand with some of her friends. It was wonderful knowing that she was well taken care of and loved when I couldn’t be there for her. I went to get my haircut and some 18 year old cut it way too short, but oh well I only have 2 more weeks at most to keep it. After cutting it I dyed it and my friend Jennifer highlighted it while I tried one of her green smoothies.
Blessings: My children have friends and they are loved.
