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.

When Sparrows Fall - August 26, 2013

I watched this video this morning (2:30 am of course) and decided to share it with you. This man and pastor talks about the Lord's promise of being with you, standing with you through whatever your trials may be. Britt's eight year old daughter has been diagnosed with cancer four times and they have been fighting the battle for over three years. Bottom Line: Do not fear anything but God alone as He is greater than anything or anyone else and God's presence is enough to sustain us.

Note:  the day after I wrote this I received a comment from Lindsey and she said that Daisy died and there was a sermon about it I should check out, however I was never able to locate it.

When Sparrows Fall  - Britt Merrick, at Reality Church in Carpinteria, California. 

there's more.....

Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart. Colossians 4:2

Scriptures for dealing with fear, worry , stress and anxiety.

Prayer is a Privilege - John Piper

Praying for you, especially for those of you who like me (in the past) have been fearful of  cancer, the future and death.
Remember, God is Good all of the time!

  1. Hey Karri- I watched this message in January when it first posted. It's been a message that has stuck with me ever since. In way of an update - Britt's daughter Daisy passed away about a month later in February. You should watch her memorial service video. It was an incredible testimony - more of the same powerful message. Praying for you to get some good sleep tonight!


Don't be shy, please leave a comment or question for me.
