At the beginning of my cancer battle, I felt strong and determined to win! I was not going to let cancer be the end of me, deep in my heart, I knew that I had more chapters. Despite, the odds stacked against me according to science and statistics, I had a feeling inside me that I would overcome cancer. Although, my body was suffering greatly from this illness, my spirit was strong and that helped me push my body beyond what was physically possible.
Of course, as I continued my cancer journey, battling through the aggressive chemo treatment and the never-ending days of struggle, it all started to slowly take a toll on me. Doubt started to make its way through into my mind and occupy my thoughts. I mean I am human after all, which means that the negative thoughts of how impossible it would be toovercome cancer started to invade my mind. Compelled with the fact that my body was being beaten up and physically worn out so much with the chemo treatments caused me to panic not knowing if my body could continue to endure more of this excruciating torture (a.k.a. chemo treatments).
As these thoughts were present in my mind, my mom told me that I had a look of concern. She told me that she knew that I was not telling hereverything that I felt or thought and she could not take away my pain, but what she could tell me was that I was strong enough to overcome cancer. She told me that she had faith in God that things would turn around and that I would regain my life. She reminded me of what she used to tell me as a little girl, “You are capable of anything, you just have to believe it.” You can overcome this cancer with God by your side. Remember, God does not give us more than we can handle. You will beat cancer!
