Oh, what a year, but we are thankful for another one. This past September 2014 I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Ductal Carcinoma-In Situ Breast Cancer. God has surrounded Tim and I through this journey one day at a time, with some tears, and a tremendous uplifting of prayers and support. God guided the surgeon to remove the big tumor on September 18th on our 4th Wedding Anniversary. A special day when I woke and my Timmy D told me no lymph nodes were affected. I remained strong through it all and my fears were always taken away by prayer. It’s amazing the amount of people whom I’ve met through this and who fight like girls to win victory over this dreaded disease. Treatment is always one of the hardest phases of the process and it was anticipated by my oncologist that I would have to have 6-8 Chemotherapy treatments. I blew him out of the water by testing out with a 0 on a test that they do to see if that type of treatment is necessary. With a 0 level I did not have to have it! So Yay….I moved on to just 33 Radiation Treatments. I’ve been told over and over God has a plan for me. It makes me teary eyed when I think about it. I’ve always said “I don’t know who holds tomorrow, but I know who holds my hand”. Just wanted to wish each and every one who is faced with breast cancer that to take one day at a time and always look up, because when things seem glim God is there and look around another CANCER SISTER is as well.
