My mum had breast cancer.
My whole life I had heard of women that suffered from it but I never really thought about it because these women were not my relatives or so.
Then the day came when my mother said that she found a lump in her breast. I didn't want to realize it and so I thought 'maybe it's nothing' but one day she came back from the doctor and it was clear that she had breast cancer.
The evening we sat together and talked. I was really afraid because I thought of the worst case, that she may die. I think she felt my fear and she said this sentence I won't forget for the rest of my life:
"I promise you 200% that I will not die from the cancer."
She said she knew because in church someone had read a verse from John 11,4 that she felt was made for her and it said that "this sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby."
It meant so much to me because I knew that my mother would fight and that the Lord Jesus would help her. And she did. She had a chemo and then radiation therapy and she won the fight.
I am so thankful that she kept her promise and that the Lord Jesus also did!
