On February 22, 2011, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and on the 23rd of February, the doctor told my friends, family, and myself that I had 3-5 days to live, and they were securing a hospice room for me. I fought this, and with God’s help, I was released from the hospital on March 15, 2011.
I started chemo in April of 2011 and am a survivor of almost 5 years. I still take a maintenance drug every 3 weeks. I encourage everyone to continue the fight. God will help you if you seek his help.
