We will fill October with hope and healing stories from those who survived the storm of Breast Cancer. Today we read a story from gospel artist Andrea Nugent. Thank you for sharing your story.
“I have a new zest for life and feel obligated to give back. Cancer has forever changed me. Through the storm, I am able to experience the life I always wanted. I had to have this test so that I could have a testimony. My testimony is allowing me to do the things I feel passionate about such as motivational speaking and writing books. I just published a children’s book, Mommy is Still Mommy: Cancer Can’t Change That!”
Inspirations: “God and my son. My son, who was 2 [years old] at the time of my diagnosis, inspired me to get up each day and fight with all my might. He told me each day that he was going to take care of me and make me feel better. My mom, my son’s father, and my brother…[they] came each day to take care of me and my son when I was weak. They really stepped it up for me. Even though my sisters, brother, dad, and step-mom live in other cities, they had my back with prayers. All my family and friends offered huge support.”
Advice to new patients: “Never give up! Attitude is everything. Your frame of mind will frame your world.”
How I’ve changed: “My faith in God has become even greater and my life has come full circle to where I am now serving others through my non-profit B.i.o.n.i.c. Girls, Inc. (Beauty is Optional: Newer Improved Changed). We provide free transportation, household cleaning, etc. to breast cancer patients. I will never look at life the same again.”
You can write your story and feel free to include at picture to firstname.lastname@example.org or call me between 10 and 3 weekdays and I can record your testimony to be included during Breast Cancer Awareness Month at 313-298-1027. ~Randi
Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.
The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.To find out more on screening, treatments and how you can support the efforts to eradicate breast cancer click the picture.
