"It is good to be able to share my story of miracles, faith, and hope."
I have had stage 4 breast cancer since 2012, but I have lived with breast cancer for almost 21 years.
In 2015, the cancer went to my brain and I had to have surgery to remove a large tumor. I had 2 seizures from the cancer before the surgery. But, with a month of therapy, I was able to go home and continue my rehabilitation by myself . I am doing well now and take the medicine twice daily to prevent further seizures.
I will get scanned again in Nov. 2016 and again in Jan. 2017 and so forth. I still get chemo every 3 weeks since Nov. 2012 to keep the rest of my cancer in check. So far, so good.
It is good to be able to share my story of miracles, faith, and hope.

“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.
