Cherron’s Story (Breast Cancer)

cherrons-story-breast-cancerHello, my name is Cherron. I am 25 years old and live in California. As of April 12, 2015, I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. I am currently still fighting this foul disease, 1 year and 5 months later.

This all started with me losing my walking gradually, and I went to the doctor three times at Lakewood Regional Hospital. The first time I went, they just said I have paralysis and they couldn’t do anything about it. The second time I went, they said I have paralysis, and I went also because I was sick a little, and they did chest and back x-rays but didn’t find anything. It took a third time, when my walking went completely out, when they decided to run an MRI and biopsy of my breast.

Soon after, I found out the cancer had spread all over my body, and I had to get surgery on my spine because the tumors hit my nerves. So I stayed there, and they transferred me to Harbor General Hospital. That was not the best hospital. As I was there, my mom and cousin tried to find me a better doctor, and they came to find out that he works at Long Beach Memorial Hospital. So I went there for rehabilitation.

While I was there, I was having pain in my left lower arm and my knee. So once again, x-rays and CAT scans were run, and the cancer had spread, so I had to get a hip replacement and a rod in my right hip and some metal put in my left lower arm.

But as of today, September 29, 2016, I am doing 75% better because I have some mobility and I am able to do certain things, such as get on my Camole by myself, get in my wheelchair, and get in the car. I went through three different oral chemotherapies, such as IBRANCE. Now I am on Perjeta, Herceptin, and Abraxane. I just started on September 21st, and I’m on my 2nd treatment. I feel by my faith that it is working. Yes, my first treatment was horrible because I was weak and nauseated, but that passed.

I will keep you guys updated. I am just going to keep my faith and believe in God that I will get through this. If anyone knows any other things, please let me know how to treat it.

    Hi Cherron. I was diagnised with bc when I was 29. I’m 34 now with recurrence (stage 4) in my bones, liver, lungs and spleen. I’m also in a wheelchair unable to do things for myself. What I have come to realise through all this is that God wants you healed and whole. I’m not sure if you’re Christian but the Bible says that by HIS (Jesus) stripes we ARE healed. Not we’re “going to be healed”. So our healing is there we just need to let God work in our lives. Positivity is key. Try to never say anything negative. Thats what the devil wants. Never let a negative thought enter your mind. Trust me I know how hard it is. The devil thrives on our negativity so dont give him a chance to get to you. He’s also very sneaky and innocent thoughts can turn into negativity without you even realising it. Find a few positive songs that you like and are uplifting to you and whenever you find a negative thought creeping into your mind, just start singing to yourself. Dont just listen to the music, SING IT! This way you are speaking life into your situation and no matter how bad the situation looks, always speak life. You will start to feel better and the healing will start. I will pray for you as well. I wish you a full and speedy recovery. X
