A Story of Survival
“I HAD CANCER, BUT IT DIDNT HAVE ME!”
In May of 2013, my life was turned upside down. Being diagnosed with stage two breast cancer at the age of 31 was more than unbelievable for the first few days. It was unbearable. Before my diagnosis I just knew that in October people wore pink and I thought only old women got it. I really didn’t know much about the illness or what all came with it. I can honestly say having breast cancer was probably the best thing to ever happened to my life, and my faith.
I was at a crossroads with God and I knew something needed to change. I would smile for the public but then go home and be depressed. I just wasn’t happy with my life, including my job. I asked God for 3 things as January 2013 rolled in and I can honestly say through breast cancer, God answered all my prayers!
