Breast Cancer

Hello, my name is Convidas Kent. I am 33 years old and I have two kids. In May of 2020 I found a lump in my breast. I called the doctor because I knew something wasn’t right. I went in for a mammogram and an ultrasound. Later I had to do a biopsy. The next few days I received a phone call. I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer and lymphoma. That was the most devastating news I’ve ever had to hear. I broke down crying. It took a toll on me and my family. It was hard to explain to my kids. I had to start treatment of chemotherapy immediately. I had to go to the doctor to get my treatments alone because of COVID-19 (which I beat in April of 2020). The chemo had me really sick so I had to stop working and eventually I started to worry about my financial issues. I would get very nauseous and neuropathy in my hands and feet and everything I ate tasted funny. I started to get very emotional and depressed at times. I then had to realize that I couldn’t let any of that get to me and that I had to be strong not just for me but my kids and family as well. I believed that the Lord wouldn’t bring me to it if he couldn’t bring me through it and if I only kept the faith as big as a mustard seed that he will bring me through. I went to chemo weekly. Within the first month or so my doctor notice that the chemo was really working fast and that what they considered a mass was shrinking really fast. Eventually they couldn’t feel anything. They were amazed how fast it had shrunk. By the end of my last treatment the ultrasound determine that there wasn’t any more cancer inside my breast. I cried tears of joy. October 16, 2020 I rang the bell. “CANCER FREE”. I would like to encourage all women to give yourself routine breasts exams or get those breasts checked because cancer don’t have a preference who it choose. To all the people that are going through what I went through, hold your head up and keep the faith and trust and believe that God will see u through. It came, we fought, I WON!! I AM A SURVIVOR!
