You never know how strong you are...until being strong is the only choice you have

When I discovered the unknown lump in my left breast, I knew something was wrong I had a feeling that it was cancer, I tried not to think that it was not but I can’t lie to myself like that. I didn’t know much about breast cancer, until I was assigned to prepare a persuasive speech in front of my speech class. I decided on breast cancer, I didn’t know much about it anyway and did my research. I didn’t have to prepare much or write an outline. I managed to dig deep and talked to the class unscripted. I somehow tied it all to what I was going through from the discovery of the lump and doctor visits to the fact that you or someone you know has been effected by cancer and I am one of them. Even though I didn’t know for sure at the time if I had it or not but I felt that I did. My cheeks trembled fighting back tears and that deep pain in my chest as I talked about my personal life with strangers for the first time it was scary but good it was practice for breaking the news down for my family and friends... after class one of the students came up to me and said I’ll be here for you if you need me... I was so touched by her and to confirmed I am not alone in this journey. As with many people who experience cancer, we’ve all been told we have 5 years to live with stage IV terminal cancer and there’s nothing we can do for you after conventional treatment fails. BUT I believe there IS! There are people out there who live beyond the statistics and have turn over to alternatives to fight cancer for good. That means changing your diet, eating natural foods that keep you alive, have a positive attitude, surround yourself with positive people, and following a spiritual path. I believe healing and restoring my health better than it was before. I pray every day for this cancer to go away. I am able to live normally have the strength to live on with a purpose and believing I am healed!

Alternative med and New Years resolution

Sunday, December 30, 2012 0 comments
Made a visit to local clinic after Christmas and it went well. Doc said that the diets I am doing and supplements I am taking now is good but is not good enough and can be better! Right now I have to do many tests to check my nutrients and chemicals in my body and find out what is really causing the breast inflammation and preventing me from getting completely healed. So this new year I am going on a strict diet! No liquor Animal fats etc.... This treatment plan... Not sure how long I will be on it but I'm sure it will take some time get my body cleansed and back to normal. This place is out of pocket only and no insurance can cover, usually is with this type of practices. The first appointment cost $395 and after that 95 a visit per hour. Yikes! But thanks to my friends and friends of friends I have enough to get me by :)

Lowest Tumor Marker Level Ever!

Tuesday, December 11, 2012 2 comments
Yesterday went in for my follow up with the oncologist, I see him once every two months now. The cancer is declining and the tumor is continuing to get softer and is less prominent than it was 3 months ago.
The cancer antigen results is 59 from 114 in September. Normal range is 39-. How cool is that?! Onco, brought up removing my ovaries so I don't have to take the hormone blocker shot anymore, but I would still have to take Zometa the bone builder and Arimidex cancer cell killer.
I am thinking about it, but if I can control my hormones with organic diet(Eating Cruciferous Vegetables) then I don't need to remove anything. It is really about about diet to improve quality of life naturally and eating foods that don't kill ya! Along with that praying and believing in healing also helps! :) God keeps me calm through my journey and he will pull me out of this when it is time!
