Walk A Mile For Me

Hi Friends,

Thank you so much for praying for me.  It means so much to know that there are so many people behind me.  I have had so many questions so here’s the deal.  

I was watching t.v. one night with my hands behind my head.  I had an itch under my arm and when I went to scratch it there was a pea size knot there.  I knew I had a well-woman’s check-up in a week so I put it in the back of my mind until then.  The appointment was two days after my 30th birthday.  I showed my doctor and she ordered an ultrasound and scheduled it for the following Monday.  (Let’s just say that was the day the whirlwind began.)  I went to the appointment thinking I would be there an hour and was there for four hours.  The moment the probe touched my chest I knew things weren’t looking good.  I had a mammogram that same day and within an hour after leaving the doctor I had a call from the specialist saying to come in the next day.  I had that appointment and five minutes after leaving they squeezed me in for a biopsy the next day.  I found out Friday that I do indeed have breast cancer.

The awesome thing is that I know God has a plan for me.  I know He has everything under control.  I know that 1 in 4 women (not sure of the odds exactly) get this and I consider myself the lucky one.  God knows that I can handle this.  He knows that I will NOT sit in a corner and throw myself a pity party.  I will let His light shine.  (If any of you truly know me, you know I am a stress ball.)  It is God's grace that I am okay with this.  I WILL fight this head on. It’s just another marathon, but this time I have tons of friends and family cheering me on.  The spectators are for me and my hope and prayer is that through me you will see God's handy work.  I promise you this. 

I will keep you updated through this blog.  But in the mean time I challenge you to walk, run, bike, or rollerblade a mile for me.  It can be daily or weekly but walk a mile for me!  While you do, say a prayer for me and thank God for everything you have and are capable of doing.  Trust in the Lord in all you do and you will succeed!

Have a great day and remember to SWEAT!
