Blessed in Sickness
Cancer—a word feared, and often related to death! But I battled cancer and overcame…and I dance with it!
The Shocking Report
My cancer diagnosis came when I had reached the end of the “Fifth Rabbit”* year of age. On November 18, 2011, I went for my regular annual mammogram. A lump on my right breast had grown bigger, compared to the previous year's result. However, there was no evidence that this was anything serious. On December 22, I went for my GYN checkup, and the doctor urged me to see a surgeon for a review. A biopsy was done on December 30. The result came back on January 9, 2012, confirming the tumor was cancer. The announcement was shocking! I just knew I was getting close to death. My first reaction was to think about how I would meet Jesus. Would I be empty-handed before Him? I prayed, “God have mercy on me!”
