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.

Chisel Skit Video - March 8, 2012

The Lord gives strength to me and blesses me with peace. Psalms 29:11

So, my friend Kimberly sent this out and even though I had seen it before, I watched it again. Last night I spoke to a friend of a friend that had breast cancer 9 years ago. Michelle spoke of her still obvious battle scars from cancer, she spoke of how it changed her and how it was a blessing.

I know that cancer didn't choose me on it's own, God is in control, and He allowed it because He knows more than me, what is best for me. This guy in the video is holding a chisel and a hammer and talking about getting rid of pride and anger and such as He demostrates what God does in our lives. It takes it to a whole other level when you realize that even your body isn't your own. Of course, I knew that but cancer takes it to another level. Not only is God gonna deal with me on a spiritual level, but a very physical level too. The fact that God has me in a world and palce where chemo and knives are a part of my present and future scares me. I will be in physical and emotional pain, I will have scars and be weak, there will be tears and it will be difficult however I know even this is temporary and that God will get the glory at the end of the whole process.

Thank God for whatever he's given you, because is doing it for a reason and it is part of His divine  and perfect plan.
