I’m celebrating a milestone! Woo hoo!! I praise God for all the blessings and miracles in my life!! Nineteen years ago today, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I fought the hardest battle and by God’s grace, I’ve beaten the dreadful disease with flying colours. It wasn’t easy overcoming fears and anxieties but with prayers (loads of it!) I learnt to be optimistic and didn't give negative thoughts any chance of taking over my sanity. There’s no denying that cancer sucks! It keeps running amuck, indiscriminately hitting anyone, without prejudice to the most health conscious individuals. A number of people close to me have not been spared by this idiotic disease. Tough as she is, I am nevertheless confident that by God’s grace, the loved one is now traveling the road to absolute wellness. Our prayers are walking her through it! And for the cyber niece of mine who is currently threatened by the big C, I know she’s one tough girl too. I am praying for her as well, for her successful operation scheduled today. May this be the start of her complete healing!
Life may not always be perfect but it certainly is full of surprises. And mind you, there sure is a rainbow after the rain! Indeed, there is life after Cancer!
As I've mentioned, I’m celebrating my nineteen years cancer free life! There’s so much to be thankful for and my spirit is soaring high! Please join me in my celebration!
