"I'm living every day to the fullest and leaving it all in God's hands."
I was diagnosed with stage I breast cancer in Jan. 2014. I was told if I did chemo/radiation, I would have less than an 8% chance of my breast cancer reoccurring in 10 years. I had 8 months of remission, then I woke up one morning and my lower knee hurt. After all the testing, it came back as stage IV breast cancer that spread to my bones. I’m living every day to the fullest and leaving it all in God’s hands.

“Mr. Marcus, you have kidney, lung, and brain cancer. Stage 4. We are going to monitor you for the next 24 hours but there is not much we can do for you here. You need to go home and start making arrangements. At most, you have two years to live.”
I had a red circle on the right side of my breast, and I had lost twenty pounds despite the fact that I was not on a diet. When I went to the doctor their tests couldn’t find anything wrong, so I told them to check out this red spot.
My husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC). He had a total left nephrectomy on our 35th wedding Anniversary on Sept. 10, 2012. At that time there was no treatment that was available.
