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.

What doesn't kill you makes you Stronger - March 4, 2012

What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger - Kelly Clarkson

I stayed home this morning and Mark took the kids to church. Hope and Mark ended up making a rainbow cake for the Bake Off at church this morning. I have been cleaning the messy house in which we never seem to get caught up on, and if I get that done to a level I can handle I'll work on some school stuff.

I totally forgot to get my blood work done on Friday after CC and so now I don't think I can go to chemo on Monday, which you know is fine by me. I'll have to go in for blood work tomorrow and that means fasting tonight, since I have to do blood work for Dr. Mark too.

Hannah got her dress for the Spring formal although it's not too formal, in fact it's made of cotton and very casual. I am so proud of her for being herself and not caring too much about what every body else thinks and wants. She is comfortable being herself and she doesn't feel the need to appologize for it. Many adults I know still have trouble with that concept. She is trying to gfet to go to Colorado with our church HS dept and she wants to go to Spain in the summer for missions trip. I am excited about her possibly getting these oppourtunities.
