On April 26, 2011, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. While such a diagnosis is often a shock, having no risk factors and no family history, I would never have expected to hear such news. Following a bilateral mastectomy, 5 months of harsh chemotherapy, and 32 radiation treatments, I am now on follow-up visits every 6 months.
I praise God for all of the blessings during my experience. I met so many wonderful people. The medical staff at IU Goshen Center for Cancer Care were so compassionate, understanding, and fun! Yes, I found ways to have fun in the midst of a very crappy situation!
Unlike some medical conditions which can be managed by lifestyle, cancer, for the most part, is a disease where the causes are rarely known.
Living as a survivor is about seeking to live each day well and hoping that the cancer does not return. News of people who have died from cancer sends a shiver of fear through me. My hope is secure in Christ, but I desire to have many more years watching my daughters grow and spending time with my husband.
Going through cancer has helped me grow in my compassion for others and in my desire to live according to what is really most valuable to me. My experience has opened the door to many meaningful conversations with other patients, students, and medical staff.
