April 5, 2018, I was diagnosed with breast cancer after a routine mammogram and
ultrasound. I became extremely fearful and depressed for the next 3 months
following my diagnosis. While undergoing aggressive chemotherapy, I focused on
building my faith and developing a positive mindset. Six months later,
all of my fears had subsided. Although I had cancer, cancer no longer had
me. I completed 16 rounds of chemotherapy treatment. A month later, I had
surgery (double mastectomy) to remove the tumor. A few days later, I
received the best news of my life. My surgeon told me I had a complete
response to my treatment hence my pathology report was clean. No residual
cancer cells were found in my tissues. Because of this, I did not need
radiation, nor any further treatment. And so, I fought hard, and won the
battle. I had the victory, and I give all the glory to my father God!
