    Oh No

    I was surprised, I can imagine that cancer was in me. I felt die. In my family the word was dead. I remembered that day may,7 th and my surprise because I was okey. Three days after, I went to the doctor, we agreed to have surgery on May 24th. I was in shock. My family was in shock. I remembered that after the surgery I wrote in face my story, because I took care, and had controls nine months before, and always think that is the reason that now Iam a survivor. I remember all people, my friends, where there, and many of 6 had the same, and told me their stories. That was a great help! I never forgot that Ian , a new Zealand firend, wrote a big letter describing, his story. I learned that I can with it. I was very sad and desesperate. My son can accepted my situation, and I needed he stayed with me. The others gave me their love, and be with me. But, I think that God, gave me many friends to stayed with me in the bad moments. I prayed for my family, because I didn t like to die. After the surgery I had 25 radiations, and 2 months after I begun with the drugs. I am here almost two years after, and I can write my story. I was afraid of cancer, Now I know I can with him. That is what I hope.
