Fifteen years ago I found a small lump in my left breast. Within 3 weeks it grew from a size of a pea to a size of a golf ball. The ultrasound did not show the lump but I knew it was there. I had a mastectomy on my left breast. I experience every side effort that is contributed to breast cancer. From the mouth sores to the losing of every hair on my body. To the losing of weight to the blotches on the skin. Yes it was stressful. Yes it was hard. Yes you feel like giving up. But it is essential that no matter how much pain you go through. No matter how negative it looks. No matter how bad and sick you become, never give up. Stay positive and keep the faith. Faith must play a significant part in your healing. I know its hard, but that is how you make it through this rough ordeal. I experience 7 months of chemotherapy twice a month. After that I had to go through hormonal therapy. I learned through having a Christian relationship with God that when God takes you through something. It is never for you but for someone else that you will come in contact with in the future. Someone that you will have to encourage, motivate and testify to them what you went through. This is what will help them survive through their their trials and come out with the same positive reaction that you have. Stay strong and positive!
