Recently, following a routine mammogram, I received some earth-shattering news. I have been diagnosed with stage 3 invasive ductal carcinoma (breast cancer). Treatment will require a bilateral mastectomy, possible radiation, in addition to chemotherapy. The extent of further tests, ultrasounds, and biopsies will also be necessary to determine whether the cancer is present in other parts of my body. The financial burden will this will impose is phenomenal and certainly exceeds what my income can bear.
Because I am self-employed, it will be a challenge to meet financial obligations medical expenses while in the process of treatment and recovery.
Though I do not believe cancer is ever a part of God's plan, His word says in Romans 8:28, "...and we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose." I will stand firm on that promise! I am convinced that my purpose in this season is to shine God's light on to the lives of others, the way He shines His light on mine. No weapon formed against me shall prosper !!!
Join my fight to eradicate cancer and cross the finish line of Victory. Many thanks to those who have been praying without ceasing. God is moving through my life in unimaginable ways.
You are my family and loved dearly.
Blessings and love to you all,
