Spreading Good News (Part 334 – My Breast Cancer Journey: Step 1)

I was recently (June 2011) diagnosed with breast cancer and will be blogging about “My Breast Cancer Journey.”

If I can inform or allay the fear(s) of just one female, this journey and the documenting of it will have been worth it!  By the way, men get breast cancer, too.  If you have breast tissue, you can get breast cancer.

My Breast Cancer Journey:  Step 1

In late May 2011, my doctor’s office informed me that my mammogram was abnormal, and that the doctor wanted me to take another one.

The second one showed a small “nodule” in my right breast.

That started me on “My Breast Cancer Journey.”

I’m blessed that lots of people—family and friends—love and care about me.  But it would be exhausting for me to contact everybody personally, so, I’m going to use my blog to document my journey and keep all informed of my progress.

And lots of people—who are not in my family or among my friends—read my “Spreading Good News” blog every day, too; so, I’ll be feeding two birds with one seed (as my sister, Nita, says).

P. S. I’m feeling fine!!  Haven’t missed a beat!!

BACKGROUND

About 25 years ago, I felt a lump in my left breast.

I never considered myself to be a worrier, but I must have been worried about it; my spirit was more upset than I wanted to believe, because. . .

One night, I was in that “twilight sleep,” where you’re either just falling off to sleep or just about to wake up.  I don’t know which it was.

I heard this voice—loud and clear.  It was the voice of a man.  It slowly and deliberately said, “YOU     DO     NOT     HAVE     BREAST     CANCER.”

It sounded like it came from the foot of the bed.  I was on my back, so I raised my head to see if someone or something was there.  I saw no one and nothing.  It must have been God or one of His angels!

I laid back down, with the most profound sense of peace that I’ve ever experienced.

On my doctor’s visit soon thereafter, the lump was gone.  The doctor said that it probably was a cyst that drained itself.

Fast forward to June 2011. . .
