I was diagnosed with breast cancer January 2008. It was Stage 1 ductal carcinoma, small, contained, good words to use when describing breast cancer. I had a lumpectomy, chemo, radiation, and now am on breast cancer fighting drugs for the next 5 years. There is a Bible verse that I have used repeatedly in my life, James 1:2-4: "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." However, I am not joyful about having breast cancer; I am scared. But I trust God because He has proven Himself trustworthy to me. This is what God has ordained for my life, and I will walk the path He has laid before me. One of my wise women friends told me that the will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you. And so the breast cancer adventure begins. Let me mention what breast cancer cannot do:

What Cancer Cannot Do

Cancer is so limited ...

It cannot cripple love,

It cannot shatter hope,

It cannot corrode faith,

It cannot eat away at peace,

It cannot destroy confidence,

It cannot kill friendship,

It cannot shut out memories,

It cannot invade the soul,

it cannot reduce eternal life,

It cannot quench the spirit,

It cannot lessen the power

of the resurrection.
