"Statistics give me five years, but I'm in Gods hands. Every day I wake up I feel blessed.”
Hi, I'm Ronda. I'm a 56-year-old mother of three and a grandmother of five. I was diagnosed July 2017 with breast cancer. The following month, I went to stage 4 metastatic breast cancer after a CAT scan revealed it had gone to my lung.
I started aggressive chemo in September 2017, which ended January 2018. I suffered from mouth sores, severe skin peeling, neuropathy in both my hands and feet. On February 14, 2018, they took my right breast. After I recovered from surgery, I had a week of radiation pinpointed at my lung.
Currently I'm on a preventative drip every three weeks for as long as it works. Every three months, I get a CT scan on my lung to make sure that it's not growing. I continue to have numbness and tingling in my fingertips (comes and goes), and every day I deal with fatigue. I'm currently on temporary disability, but I have hopes of going back to work sometime in 2018 if my body will let me.
