May I suggest that you let God know how scared you are. Ask him to take your hand ang guide you through this.. let Him know you'll follow Him where he leads you. I'm not exagerating one bit... My fear left me the instant I reached out my hand to Him. He's led me through Stage IV Ovarian Cancer... Through major surgery to remove a 39lb tumore.. then the doctor scraped it off of my intestines and euretha.... Two years of chemo.... That was almost 7 years ago... I'm still here and still cancer free. Breezy, a positive attitude will really help... stress takes a lot out of a body and can actually cause some illnesses.... Put your faith in God and in your Oncologist. Do what they ask you to do... follow their plan.... Put a smile on your face (I also used makeup and wigs) Me bald is not a pretty sight. Actually see yourself completely well. Visualize yourself hearing the word survivor... I know you're strong and you're young... Just do it.
I write poetry... I wrote this when I was diagnosed, but prior to meeting with the Oncologist.

I know that I’m not in control… But Thank God that He is!
I know that I’ve no need to plan, for the best plan is His.
I know that I am not alone. Friends walk the path with me.
I know that yes, I must be strong, find out what waits for me.
I know that as in "Footprints" there's only one set in the sand.
and I know that I am clinging, very tightly to His hand.
Today, I'll see what doctors -- can do to help me stay
here with all my loved ones, cherishing each day
