Six years ago I was classified as Stage 1, triple negative. Went through chemo, surgery & radiation…got clean and clear!
15 months later I was classified Stage 4…cancer was in my lungs, bones and nodes. Chemo got me clean again for 8 months only to have cancer come back again and this time it was pissed.
It was in my brain.
3 – yes THREE brain surgeries within 10 months was what it took to remove breast cancer from my brain.
Today, I sit here 18 months later…CANCER FREE!!
I have been cancer free in my body for THREE years and in my head 18 months.
Please know this has NOT been a quick or easy road.
I know how it is to wonder if this will be my last Christmas.
I know how that hole in your heart feels.
But I also know the power of Hope.
You can never let go of Hope.
Even if you are hanging on to that string of Hope by a tiny, tiny string – you hang on to that string with ALL YOU HAVE.
You hang on to that string with every ounce of fight you have in you.
You hang on to that string of Hope like you would hang on someone trying to snatch your baby away from you.
YOU HANG ON
You find something – anything every day to fight for.
Tell it that you will NOT ALLOW it to take Hope away from you.
Whatever you do with this, please let it reach your heart and fill it full of Hope.
