…yes I AM! Six years ago, in December 2010, I laid on a table in a lab getting an ultrasound that would change my life forever. Breast Cancer. Though not confirmed it was evident. Fast forward to six years later, December 2016, I laid on an MRI table, in that same lab, wondering if my cancer had recurred. It was an ire feeling walking in there, sitting, waiting, reading vibes, etc. Yes, for the past six weeks I’ve been living with a secret, shared with only God and two people on this earth, that I may have to go through this all over again. Had my cancer returned?
Well, I am thanking and praising God on this day that my results came back negative!!!! Hallelujah!!!! Although I certainly did not want to travel that road again, I had began preparing myself for what was to come. This is a wake up call. I realize I need to focus strengthening myself mentally, physically and emotionally. More so than before. I talk a good game in my mind but that doesn’t always translate into action. Starting now, and not the coming year, I am taking better care of myself.
I would like to thank the two individuals who held on to my secret, praying with and for me, holding my hand until we witnessed the good news of God’s grace. I love you all and am eternally grateful. It means more than you could ever know or I could ever express.
As I continue my journey of survival, I know I’ll fight for the rest of my life. And that’s okay because as long as I’m fighting, I’m here, surviving. I love my life. I love God. I love all that have been, continue to be and are to become a part of this walk with me. To all my fellow survivors, keep fighting. We are more than conquerors!
