I have a positive outlook on my situation. I get that from having faith. Think a little about my situ, a rare (less than 1% of all breast cancers) breast cancer which means almost non-existent research. Before becoming a cancer patient I always told myself I would choose not to have chemo/radiation because of the bad rap that it has. But now, I wish I had that option as another layer of protection. I don't have that option. I am unemployed which just throws another monkey wrench into the mix.

I have faith in God and have many prayer partners who I am eternally grateful for. I get my strength from God, whom I rely on and continuously give thanks to.
Also, my Mom and brother helped and support me a lot. I couldn't do it without them and love them dearly. My true besties are great and stand behind, encourage and love me. It is a blessing also to have the love and support from my extended families

So, there you have it. I will start to post regularly and use an old camera to take photos until I am able to purchase a better camera. But, for the next few postings I will use older pics. Hopefully ones that you haven't seen from me previously.
I think this is enough for now. Until my next posting.
