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.

Thermogram, Young Living and Neal's Yard Remedies - November 5, 2013

Hey there! I hope you, my readers are doing well and feeling blessed.

So, I am going to get a thermogram on Thursday at Dr. Dawn's -
If you don't know what a thermogram check this out:

The plan is to have my upper body scanned which will cover the top of my head to my belly button. I am excited to finally be getting this done, but also a bit nervous as it has been 16 months since my okay I am cancer free report. It's really been way too long as it was supposed to be checked every 6 months; so much for prioritizing, right? Thermography doesn’t cover bone or brain and so I'll most likely head up to MD Anderson eventually to get a MRI, PET and /or CAT scan. I am really trying to limit my exposure and so that will have to be a prayerful decision

The fact is that my cancer was a highly aggressive type cancer and if we were looking at stats there would be a pretty high probability that it has grown; but thank goodness that’s not what we are concerned about at all in this case. Stats don’t scare me a bit, much to the chagrin of the oncologist. I know that God has healed me for now and that I could live to be a hundred or He could allow it to come back, but either way I am different -  not just a number to be worried.

Here’s a quick list of my latest big things minus family and school stuff.

1.    I got a treadmill off of Craigslist. I stuck it into the corner of the dining room where it can be seen and used by many on a regular basis. I did a 30 minute interval last night and am so happy to be skipping doctor Mark’s advice here and exercising for the first time in 4 years! Dr. Mark has told me that my body needed to heal completely before exercising, but I actually think that’s hogwash as I have really researched this and I think in this one case, he is wrong. So I am excited and hope to do 30 minutes to 1 hour a day.

2.    I started selling Young Living! You can check out my YL website and order from there. I swear by Theives and while there are many other products that I have tried and love that’s my first suggestion to get you started. I wish I had known about essential oils years ago!
Here’s a symptom research guide in which you just put in what you are looking for
Here's a link to a brief User's Guide on how oils can help with health:

3.    I also started selling Neal’s Yard Remedies, which I know most of you haven’t heard of, but I am telling you, they are amazing organic beauty products and more. I absolutely love these products which sell themselves. Just one try of a sample and you'll understand.

I'll add my new websites to the resources on the right side so you can easily get to them in the future as well. 

Okay, so that’s it for now.

Have great day!
