I know that not everyone receives their healing from this horrible disease, but I am living proof that it can and does happen. 10 years ago I was given a 50/50 chance of survival. I was 33 with a 2 year old and a 4 year old and trying to conceive a third child. Everything in that moment after diagnosis stopped and beating cancer was the only goal. I had no idea what my future would hold. In December 2018 I celebrated 10 years cancer free with no recurrence. I was very fortunate that chemotherapy did not cause menopause and I was even able to conceive and give birth to a (surprise!) beautiful baby girl 6 years after my chemotherapy.
I know what you are experiencing and dealing with right now is horribly difficult and sometimes hope is hard to hold on to, but healing and restoration is possible. God gets all the glory in my outcome, but He definitely placed me in the hands of an amazing surgeon and a fantastic Oncologist. I want to encourage you that healing is possible and remind you that it can and does happen. This is a fight worth fighting. Keep fighting. Praying for you all and praying for a cure.
