Janie Cancer Journey

As hard as this is to tell my story again, I really wanted this to be in my own words this time.  As most of you know I started my cancer journey in September of 2017. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. My Dr. Recommended surgery, she said she was removing everything,the day of surgery she took everything out except the ovaries. She said I would have hormonal issues and go through menopause and that we would have to do radiation on the ovaries. I trusted my dr completely. I went through radiation and finished my treatment in February 2018. They had me ring a bell saying I was cancer free. ALL GLORY TO GOD.  3 months later I started feeling sick again. I went to the ER May 21st and they ran series of test and CT scan. The dr said It was possibly a reacurrance. He sent over my results to my OBGYN Dr. We did a PET scan May 24th confirming that same day that the cancer was back and more aggressive. It had spread to pelvic walls, my spine and part of my lungs and lymph nodes.I was told it was stage 4b. Basically I have to rely on Chemo from now on. If chemo doesnt take we have no certainty of how long I have to live. So far I've done chemo for over a year. September 26, 2019 is my 16th chemo. I have 5 more from this cycle and then we will do another scan.I've never in my life had so much desire to Live.Not only do I see things differently but I HAVE to live. I have 3 kids. An 11 year old son and twin girls 8 years old. They are so attached to me and count on me to be here for them..I am thankful for every single one of you for the donations in my first scare. Never in a million years would I find my self asking for money after I was ashamed to ask the first time. My babies still need their mama. I want to live and I'm determined to live and watch my babies grow up to graduate,  get their college acceptance, graduate college, get married have kids and make me a grandmother.  GOD only you GOD and the help of amazing drs can save me and I will not be scared because you are by my side going through this with me. I love you all and appreciate all the prayers and help.Thank you. God bless.
