Well, once again, cancer has visited me. (See: The Kidney Stone Miracle .)
A routine mammogram in September eventually led to a breast biopsy on October 1st, and I learned on October 4th that it was cancerous. The good news is is that it was small (Stage 1), and Grade 1 (usually slow growing). (Ladies, please get yourself checked regularly!)
Surgery (lumpectomy) was today, October 23rd, 2018. They took out one lymph node, also. So, I will keep you posted on how things go. I’ll have radiation for sure.
Just recently, I came across an excerpt from Ann Voskamp’s book, The Broken Way: A Daring Path Into the Abundant Life. She is sitting in the waiting room of a doctor’s office. Another woman is there, talking about her “cancer checkup”.
The woman says, ” ‘You know what? … Dr. Reid says … that in our human bodies, the cells that only benefit themselves are known as cancer.’ ” Ann goes on to write, “How had I never known that cancer is the cells that only take for themselves? Cancer is what refuses to die to self.”
