Breast Cancer Story

I know God will not give us more than we can handle. I also know I am at my brim. At age 32, I was in a wheelchair due to a congenital back problem. I had to have major back surgery in order to be able to even try and walk again.

The surgery was successful. I am able to walk, but I will never be able to work again. Since then, I have been diagnosed with depression/anxiety, fibromyalgia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and sclerosis of sacroiliac.

On May 8, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II invasive ductal breast cancer. I go to my first chemo appointment today. I am having a double mastectomy within a month, I am 42.

I am worn out, and need strength to fight.
