20th Year of Journey to Cancer Free Life

Twenty years after my breast cancer diagnosis, I can't help but look back.  I am trying to decipher why I made it through while others did not.  I suppose, God must have set out a greater mission for me to have leased me a second life.  That mission is still unknown to me till now.  I hope one day, I would realize that I had accomplished that mission without delay.   I am grateful that I am blessed to still be around today enjoying life, ..laughing and loving.  There are times of aches and pains but it is an integral part of being alive.  It is not a half-empty glass but rather a half-filled glass for me.   Always, countless blessings exist anywhere, everywhere.  "One’s healing depends on his state of mind. If you think you are sick, then you surely are. Whatever your mind perceive, you’re body will achieve.”  These words from my doctor makes sense to me now.

It is said that to be diagnosed with Breast Cancer is to live with it through the rest of your life. Nonetheless, I would like to think that I had hit it right in the head which knocked it down completely without the chance of getting awake.

Come celebrate with me and cheers to all of us, Breast Cancer Survivors!  Whether still on the arena and giving a good fight or declaring a knock out win, we are all winners for having strength and courage to face the challenge!

And it's during this 2nd lease of life that I had the pleasure 'to meet' you so I thank God for that.

Happy 20th birthday Ate Beng! Not quite sure kung may specific date ang iyong ikalawang kaarawan but I just want to greet you. O di ba you're no longer a 'teenager'....

Enjoy the weekend.

Naku Tita Beng! Nahuli na ba ako para batiin ka on your 20th bday? ;-) Belated happy birthday nalang po.

Didn't know you were diagnosed to have breast cancer, Tita Beng. I took the time to read the link you provided. Praise be to God you were able to survive it with flying colors. I still was given the chance to know you and be inspired through your blog.

God indeed is our Ultimate Healer. It only proves that there is hope even if one feels hopeless.

Hope you had a grand birthday!

Love and hugs.
