First Diagnosed with Breast cancer in 1992 at the age of twenty eight, I was scared to death. Having two young children ages 18 months and 3 yrs. old my biggest worry was who was going to be their mother. I hoped I was able to see my kids grow up. I went through 6 treatments of chemo and was sure I was cancer free.
Nine years later the cancer showed up again and my wish was to see my kids graduate from high school. I went through over 50 radiation treatments and once again I figured I was in the clear.
Well once again I was mistaken and 6 years later it has returned again. It is a little tougher to get rid of the third time around.
I have always known there was a God but did not realize how Good God is until this third time around. I have complete faith God is using me for a reason. We all have gifts, and I have come to believe that with my gift of service I am able to reach out to a lot of people with my story and God's word. I have met a lot of supporting people through this battle, new friends, old friends that I didn't realize even cared, and others that have breast cancer or other diseases that rely on God. I pray that I am able to see my grandkids.
I can do all things through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
