The Core Needle Biopsy

Mammograms & MRI’s

In my last post I shared with you how I received The Diagnosis of breast cancer.  I would like to backtrack and explain how I arrived at that diagnosis.  A common phrase I am becoming accustom to hearing in response to the fact I am a breast cancer survivor is: But you’re so young! Ok,…

The Diagnosis

Suicide

I understand the reality of losing all hope. I understand the reality of feeling completely defeated. I understand desolation and despair. Luckily for me,…

BOLD

Happy New Year! Can you believe 2017 is over and we are entering 2018? I began 2017 with a focus – “Encouragement.”   A goal for my entire year. One word that embodied my theme for that year. I also had selected theme verses for the year – Isaiah 61:1-7. Isaiah 61:1-7 vividly explains how God…
