In 1998 as I was a single mother of 4 young children. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 30 yrs old. I found out that I had a genetic disposition. My mom, her younger sister, my sister and several cousin had it as well. My maternal grandmother had ovarian cancer. Two uncles had prostate. I just want to scream from the mountain top, God is a healer amen. Although that diagnosis was devastating, I know for myself God is able to do everything but fail. One day I heard the Holy Spirit say, this sickness is not unto death. I must be honest, due to the pain I begged God to let me die. I was in such despair, but his grace and mercy is sufficient. I underwent a few months of chemo and a mastectomy. I asked God to allow me to see my children grow up. Fast forward 21 years, I have several grandchildren whom I love dearly!!! I wouldn’t change that experience if I could. I truly appreciate my life. I’m blessed, because God is evident in my life.
