allows to happen in my life. The first time I married, it was too early, at the impulse of immaturity and without knowledge of God. Even so, in His immense kindness, He blessed me with 3 beautiful children who are the best part of my victory.
In 2001 I came to a strange land, strange language and strange people, without knowing what the future would bring. Already with a contrite heart in God, I trusted His plan would be better than mine. I faced difficulties with hard times of adapting, separation, divorce, grief, loneliness and learned to smile when my heart was crying. I learned to keep going when I just wanted to stop. I endured more than I thought possible because my trust was not in me but in Him who created me. I learned having friends is very good, but having friends who are friends of Jesus is even better. I learned one person doesn't change another before the change begins within us. I learned to forgive in order to start over. I learned love is a decision and not a mere sentiment. I opened my heart for a second chance and promised God I would do everything differently if it was His will for me to find another person. He gave me the grace to find the love of my life; an honest man who is filled with the Holy Spirit. A man who demonstrates through large and small gestures it's worth believing in love again. We married in 2009 and once again I was blessed by God to have the grace to conceive, 17 years after my last child. After many prayers, 1 laparoscopy, 1 surgery of reverse tubal ligation and 1 year and 37 weeks of waiting, with great faith in God and the intercession of Our Lady, a great joy came into our lives. Lucas James Wolfe was born, May 13, 2013, the day Our Lady of Fatima (I had a special request to Our Lady that he be born this day).
Unfortunately, four days after his birth my left breast began to have complication. It seemed to be mastitis. I went to 4 different doctors and they all said it was mastitis. After three months, I discovered the true diagnosis: inflammatory breast cancer that is quite rare and especially at my age. I never had a thought about this being a curse, but rather a grace, not because God wants me to have this disease, but because I knew His mercy would be enough. Every day I thank Him for the opportunity to be a witness of His great love and give Him thanks for the support, love and prayers of my family and friend. This is not a story of defeat, but victory, because I am victorious in Jesus name.
After trying conventional treatment with chemotherapy, I have decided to take my treatment one step further and place my trust in divine mercy and the healing God can provide naturally. In researching natural treatments, I discovered the cure rate is much higher than conventional treatment and without the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Instead of destroying my immune system, I will increase it; giving my body the strength it needs fight this disease. Unfortunately, natural treatment is very expensive and not covered by any insurance so I come here to ask the Holy Spirit to touch the hearts of all those who see this message to be able to help me win this victory, a total cure. The little becomes much when our efforts are joined together. I thank you in advance for your support and contributions. May God bless you much as He has done for me.
