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.

Pray for Kim Please - Feb 23, 2012

This is my 3rd post since around 3a.m.Why you ask? Well one thing I wanted to do is ask you to pray for another woman. Here's what has happened. Yesterday while sitting having chemo I received an e-mail from a woman, a homeschooling mother of 4 and breast cancer patient that I have met in the past through KACH (Katy Area Christian Homeschoolers). No, I don't remember her, but that's not the point. Anyways, I just think God is so funny and clever. I prayed I could meet people that had something in common with me, and Monday night I met a woman (Sue) that had stage 2B breast cancer and who was definitely her own advocate as well, and then yesterday the very next day I hear from this woman who has the same doctors as me and was going in for her 6 month surgery at that same time. I was sitting in a chemo chair, while she was getting ready for her mastectomy in the next building over! What a very small world. Anyways, I have had contact with her hubby, Todd this morning and I have to go to the hospital for my shot and so I think I’ll bring her some flowers. I love when God answers prayers fast. Please pray for her today. She has to have 3 days of recovery in the hospital and she is on heavy pain medicines. Her name is Kim.
