Jessie Castleman | Breast Cancer Survivor

“Having cancer makes you appreciate life more. It makes you appreciate the little things in life, like being with your family and friends.

I’ve always been a Christian. That has been a source of strength for me. I find strength through reading and studying my Bible. And I had support from my family and friends. People that I really didn’t even know sent me cards encouraging me.

I would tell someone who’s been newly diagnosed with cancer to be strong, to listen to their doctors, and to have faith in the Lord; he’s going to see you through this.”
