Iris’s Story (Breast Cancer)

Breast Cancer StoriesI was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. I had a double mastectomy, and was told I was cancer free. In June of this year, I felt a lump on my right breast and figured it had something to do with my implant. I called the doctor and was given an appointment to have it checked. After an MRI revealed there was something suspicious, I was scheduled for an inpatient biopsy at the hospital. The doctor did not believe that it was cancer until I was called to follow up for the results.

I was told the cancer had returned and was very aggressive. I just had surgery yesterday and had a port inserted, so I can soon start chemotherapy and then radiation. I am a fighter, and I truly believe cancer picked the wrong chick. I have a great support system: my family and friends who are helping me through this journey. I know that I’m in the hands of God, and he is guiding me through this. May God bless you all, and if you or someone you know is going through this, please remember to have faith and believe that you are stronger than what is trying to get you down.

  1. I am Iris’s friend and I just want to further her story by detailing just how strong of a fighter she is. I was with her at the hospital when she went for this last procedure. This girl is full of faith and has it embedded in her mind that she has already beaten this. She wholeheartedly believes it. While in the waiting room she looked like she had not a worry in her mind. Just another day at the office. Meanwhile, I was breaking inside, watching my friend, my sister go through this. She truly inspired me. Her faith in our almighty father is immeasurable. The support system that she has from her family and friends, is a testament to the beautiful woman I know. That day at the hospital, she had over 20 supporters by her side. The hospital staff was amazed at the size of her support system. I’m sure the experience was overwhelming for her. I love my friend, my sister. She will beat this! I declare this in Jesus’s name.
