“Both my mother and my son died of cancer. When I was diagnosed, I was determined I could overcome it.

I would say that cancer changes your life. It is OK to be afraid, because you are fighting for your life. You can get through this with your faith. There will be some dark times, and you may feel that you are alone. But it will get better.

You must take proper care of yourself and do exactly what your doctors tell you to do. This is beatable. Live your life to its fullest, and thank God because you are still here.”
