Offering Faith, Hope and Love

I am 63 years old and was diagnosed with srage IV small cell lung cancer in June of 2015. My lung cancer was inoperable. As of today, I have been battling survival joyously, one day at a time for 20 months. This past Friday I completed 78 total treatments of chemo since July of 2015. No radiation. I have only been able to go 2 months with a clear CT scan before it returns. This form of lung cancer is incurable and will continue to return. In spite of that, I remain positive every day with every breath God gives me. I started out with cancer in my right lung, chest lymph nodes and liver. Upon return, its only been in my right lung and chest lymph nodes. I am eternally grateful to my doctor, my oncology nurses, and medicine. But most of all I'm grateful to my Lord. Without God walking this journey with me I couldn't have made it. He has provided strength to me physically, spiritually and emotionally. I do not take one minute of any day for granted. I do not slip into despair when I have a bad day. I had bad days before cancer. My goal is to uplift others, to shine the light, to pass on His glory. During this journey I have recognized that ALL glory goes to Him. God bless all of you. 💜💙
