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 9, 2012 - Port Surgery for weekly chemo

I had my port put in today and surgery went well. I was at the hospital at 2:00 and out by 7:30. The port is sore and itches and I can’t take a bath for 2 weeks but I can take quick showers and pat it dry. As long as no one jumps up on me I’m o.k. with my pain meds. I’m pretty frustrated that they told me after the fact that I can’t lift anything over 10 lbs for 14 days. It’s hard not being able to lift your baby up when he wants you too.
Blessing: the people at Methodist were very sweet and since it’s a new hospital it was like a ghost town meaning I got lots of attention
