My journey began on September 7, 2015 at around 4am. I was asleep and during a dream God lifted my left hand and laid it on my right breast. I then woke up and felt the lump. I did not have health insurance at the time so I called the Breast & Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP). BCCCP is a program that offers FREE mammograms, breast screenings, pap smears and follow-up testing to eligible uninsured women. They scheduled me an appointment the next day. This was the beginning of the process that also included an ultra sound, a more extensive mammogram and a biopsy.
On October 1, 2015, we received the results of my biopsy. The tumor was malignant. Stage 2B Breast Cancer, invasive ductal carcinoma. After several test and appointments, it was decided that I would need a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. We prayed about it and was at peace with the course of treatment. God showed me the end of this journey, which was VICTORY, but He did not show me the road I would have to travel to get there, that is where faith comes in. All I will say is Use me Lord and let your Will be done. So no matter what this journey has in store for me, I have faith that my God will see me through.
