    Do you believe that your attitude will help you to become a survivor?

    I was told by my regular doctor, my oncologist, the chemo nurses and my doctors PA.. that my attitude got me through this battle against cancer. I want to share what strength I received. My faith gives me strength. I truly believe that God wants only the best for His children for he loves us deeply. With this in mind I followed where he led me. He put a fabulous doctor in my life... I did everything the doctor wanted me to do. You should have seen the smile on the doctor's face when I told him I wanted to fight this killer... that I had more to do in my life. God then gave me the strength and stuborness to keep going. This verse was on my Daily Bible Quotes for today. I think it says it all.

    " So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10 -

      My mom told everyone that it was my will to live that got me through. I made a little speech at Thanksgiving dinner 2010 when I had finished treatment. I thanked everyone for helping me and supporting me. Then my mom spoke and said it was all me. She said even though I was thanking everyone for helping me, it was me. I didn't know she felt that way. It felt good because I had tried to lighten everyone's burden by being strong and upbeat during my journey. I wasn't always successful because sometimes the illness go the best of me, but I know they all saw how hard I was trying. I am fighting again with a recurrence.and I hope I can be as strong this time.

      There are so many wonderful responses here and I am inspired by all of you. The only thing that I will add is that I believe that my positive attitude not only helped me through, but it also helped my family and my friends to deal with all of this. Even through all the tough times of chemo, there was a deep sense of peace and inner strength in the midst of the pain. I can't explain it, but I believe that my husband and my sons felt it too, perhaps because they saw how I was dealing with the circumstances? I believe that my faith is my source of strength and hope, and helps me through this journey.
