My boob betrayed me, MY Journey to Healing
When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. John 11:4 KJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
■ I am grateful that God goes Before us and I just must endure the Process to the Victory we have IN him. I am praying for others who are fighting to Survive
"A diagnosis will not change my Declaration! He IS, "The Lord God that Heals Thee!"
Thank you for your love, prayers, and support. Some of you do or don't know I was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago and have been pressing through life and receiving care at MD Anderson. I pray for and think of others from staff to patients as I know my presence has Purpose. I may not fully know the why but if I'm here in this place, God wants the journey to Glorify him. This is a difficult and different place but I believe Healing is my portion, I just need to endure all that comes with the process. From January to March I went from no insurance to covered, no Dr. to a full patient with millions of appointments. We have been blessed with amazing Doctors, nurses, and staff. Others have blessed our home and family in ways that have blown my mind. God is so good!
Here is an update: I had a single right breast mastectomy and lymph node removal on 3/24 at MD ANDERSON. Everyone's journey in this is different so I'm learning as I go. I thankfully tested negative for any genetic markers or family cancer genes. What I know is God loves me and has gone before him so my biggest task is trusting him fully.
Listen to your body, check your boobs; mine betrayed me, lol. I felt something in my left breast that led me to the Dr. (ended up being a cyst) but is how they found cancer all over my right breast that couldn't be felt and wasn't bothering me. Be good to you and any other woman you can. I will begin documenting my journey when I'm ready hoping to bring information, awareness, and faith to women. Highlighting the need to be connected to Christ as I would have ignored it but "something" would not let me shake it. Also the importance of being your own advocate as the initial Dr. said because I have lumpy breasts like a lot of young black women (non cancerous) it was probably nothing. Thankfully before I left he came in and said if he didn't send me for biopsy he wouldn't be able to sleep. Had I waited 6 months like he 1st said it may have been too far gone (God spoke up for me and my life) Please encourage ladies in your life to get a mammogram. I'm sooo grateful I did.
"But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you."
