Why write? why blog? Why breast cancer? Since being diagnosed on February 27, 2014, I have gone through many emotions, feelings, and challenges and I have learned that NOTHING will stop me. I will persevere because I believe I CAN.
They say writing can help you deal with issues better. That you can get it out in words and somehow try and make sense of all the craziness that is taking place so quickly in your life once you are diagnosed. I have been VERY open about my journey so far with family, friends and on facebook because I wanted people to know what I was going through and I wanted prayers.
I know from past experience that prayers make all the difference when hard times come. I would love to pray for others when they had needs or wants and I made myself as open and helpful to others as I could. It was easy for me “to do” for others. When I needed help, it was humbling to say the least to “step out” and ask others for help………and take it without guilt.
I want to write because I want to get out how I felt, how I am feeling and how I’m getting through all of this with a strong faith in God, a positive attitude and an amazing husband.
If you come along for the journey, hope I shed some light or give some peace and understanding of breast cancer. I know all cancers are different, even breast cancers as everyone has their own journey and no one person is the same. We can all show much more compassion to each other and the world though and open up our eyes to the beauty that is in front of us each day that we take for granted.
