I am 38 year’s old, and proud to say that I am a breast cancer survivor. In July 2011, I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. I thought my world ended when those words came out of my doctor’s mouth. I thought about my only son, my 4 daughter’s, and my grandchildren. For three month’s I was in a bad place, I felt so much sadness in my heart.
Every Monday, I had chemo treatment. My doctor and his staff were amazing, they were super kind, and I love them. My doctor told me not to give up, and after three months of crying all the time, and feeling depressed, I felt at peace.
I didn’t understand it, but I believe that it was God telling me I was going to be okay. After 10 months of chemo, I was in remission. My doctor told me with a smile, “God must love you.” He said in the year’s that he has been a doctor that this rarely happens. I felt such joy in my heart and I knew this was the power of prayer from all my friend’s and family. God is awesome! Today I just take it one day at a time. I thank God for everything that I live to do. I tell my children and my grandchildren, my pet’s that I love them . Every birthday, every holiday is important to me.
I fight like a girl every day, and I am proud to say that.
