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!
