    Oh No

    Went to do a routine check up did not feel any lump. A week later was call to repeat the test. Second call was to come in to see the doctor who order a few more test. When all result was done i was told i have to do a radical mastectomy on my right breast. i have to seek from family,church and close friends,i was already in pain from a surgery i had done a month ago removing disc from my neck. I known this is a battle i have to fight, but i cant fight alone, i had to ask God for strengh and direction to over come this one.

    That was when my life change, I was in pain, I was anger, I got depress, did not know how to explain this to my children ages 21,12,9,and 5. While in the hospital i started to God for help and directions to face them,wondering if my husband was going to be the same person i left home,can he manage with out me. With my faith in God his Grace and Mercy carried me through and we are one big happy family now.

    did not feel any thing, just went to do a routine check up. Got the shock of my life. I had just remove some disc from my neck a month ago, was still in pain. After consulting with the Doctors and doing the testes that was requried, i was told i have to remove the right breast. it was hard,but i learn to trust and depend on God to see me through.
