BELIEVE: Never Lose Faith, Hope & Strength!
I was healthy like every one else. I never thought in my mind I could have cancer. When I was in Texas I found a lump, which was removed. After that, I moved to Florida and a biopsy was done on a second lump which was negative. Between moving and losing a job, it was hard to find another doctor, since my doctor moved to Ohio and they were not doing any exams without a physician referral. I was so busy and then started noticing that something was wrong in my breast, as well as a limp in my walking.
After going through several doctors, the last referral started to do a lot of testing and then confirmed that I have cancer. That news shocked me and I started crying. I was scared since my life changed in a heart beat.
At age 38 I was diagnosed Stage IV breast cancer metastatic to the bone ER/PR + HER 2+. Due to the results I then had a hip replacement, 10 radiation treatments and now my battle has just begun for my breast cancer.
I have to thank God for giving me a wonderful husband that is with me at all times. Family and friends have come together and even strangers have gathered around to pray for me. Just believe that God is with you, never loose faith, hope, strength, and always be Positive.
Believe… that you can fight this and that everything is possible…
You are not alone. Do not skip any exam, do your monthly testing religiously, because you never know….
