March has been a busy month for us, but wanted to share some news with my visitors.
Some of you may know that we moved to Montana last year after my husband retired. Well.. with that move came having to find a new cancer facility somewhere close to where we live.
After a lot of research, I found the Billings Cancer Center in Billings, MT. The thing that drew me to choose them over clinics that might be closer was that they have a Naturopathic MD on staff, like Cancer Treatment Centers of America. I truly feel that the nutritional supplements my NMD prescribes for me have been a MAJOR reason why I am still alive and kicking today.
Anyway.. short story long, I had my visit there this month with a bone scan and blood work done and all came out looking just great!
I was diagnosed in June 2007 with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. Typically people in this stage will live a few years after diagnoses – WITH medical treatment / chemo / radiation, etc.
I cannot express enough how blessed by God I feel to have survived this awful breast cancer for so long. There have been so many momentous things happen that I, statistically, should not have been around to go through! Statistically women in stage 4 mets cancer have a survival rate of getting 5 years out of 22%. I am now almost 11 years out from my diagnosis date. No one in this world can convince me that the reason I am still alive is only by the grace of God!
Thank you all for reading this and I hope that you have a blessed Easter!
