Cancer and life afterwards from a 42 year old Christian wife and mom of six. Please check out the many resources on the right side of the page.
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.

The Butterfly - May 23, 2013
This is from Pastor Tony Evans blog and I thought I'd share it with you all.
From an old English parsonage, down by the sea There came in the twilight a message to
me; Its quaint Saxon legend, deeply engraven, Hath, as it seems to me, teaching from
Heaven. And on through the hours the quiet words
ring Like a low inspiration–”DO THE NEXT
Many a question, many of fear,
Many a doubt, hath its quieting here. Moment by moment, let down from Heaven, Time, opportunity, guidance, are given. Fear not tomorrows, Child of the King, Trust them with Jesus, “DO THE NEXT
Do it immediately; do it with prayer; Do it reliantly, casting all care; Do it with reverence, tracing His Hand Who placed it before thee with earnest
command. Stayed on Omnipotence, safe ‘neath His
wing, Leave all resultings, “DO THE NEXT
Looking to Jesus, ever serener, (Working or suffering) be thy demeanor, In His dear presence, the rest of His
calm, The light of His countenance be thy
psalm, Strong in His faithfulness, praise and
sing, Then, as He beckons thee, “DO THE NEXT
