I was 37 years old when I was diagnose with stage 2 breast cancer. My mother had died of breast cancer 4 years before. My children were 5 and 8 and I really believed I was going to die. I had a mastectomy and then chemo. I always tried to keep a positive attitude to what was happening to me. I accepted the challenge God had send me, I was scared but I had lots of loving family around me. My mother-in-law was the angel God send me to look after me, she was there for me all the way. My dad gave me the moral support to not give up. My husband and my 2 loving children where my inspiration to continue on forward even when I felt I could not take all the nausea and aching pain in my body. Thank you God for hearing my plea to allow me to stay in this earth to see my children grow to adults.

It has being 8 years (this March 2009) that I was diagnose and I feel great. I always remind my sisters to check themselves and never miss a mammogram appointment. I have also explained and told my daughter that she needs to be on top of this herself.

I am grateful to have a loving and caring family they were great support for me while I was going through this frightening time of my life.

I believe joined together we can find a cure for this disease.
