Maria fighting stage 4 Cancer

I'm a 50 year old wife and mother of 2 amazing daughters. In 2008,  I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. I had a double mastectomy followed by 6 chemo treatments. In January of 2015, my cancer came back. I am now battling stage 4 Metastatic breast to the bones and between October and Nivember 2016, the cancer spread to my lungs and brain.
 I have a long difficult battle.
I started working at the age of 16 and have always enjoyed working, being independent, and building a career for myself.  After being diagnosed with a terminal illness, I was no longer able to work. In fact, getting well was my new focus and full time job.  
Your prayers and support are very much appreciated.
Thank you in advance and God bless.
