Mind over cancer

I have cancer. I HAVE cancer. It does not have me.  I refuse to be brought down by it or become just a statistic. I will be emotionally strong,  even if I am  physically weak. I will be positive and uplifting not negative and depressed. I just have to believe in myself and God and together we can overcome any obstacle. I decided the first day I was told I had cancer that I was  a fighter and a survivor. I would not  be  a “victim”. I believe in my God. I have hope, I have faith, I even have peace that everything in my life has happened for a reason including  the cancer and losing my daughter. I believe one day soon I’ll go to the doctor and it will just be gone. Everyone says I’m not a worrier or I don’t  worry enough. What am I supposed to do? Sit here upset and worry that the chemo won’t work,  the cancer  will spread, I won’t be  able to afford to continue treatment, or that I’ll die?  No I’m sorry that doesnt work for me. Worrying will never change the outcome. I will fight {positively} like a girl and I WILL win.  “rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be consent in prayer” {Romans 12:12}. Don’t get me wrong I have my moments but I don’t let them last long I have to keep my spirit up. I hate cancer, I hate the chemo, and I hate the laser therapy. On the bright side I trust my God and  I am his number one “fan”.  I have never been more proud to call my husband mine  and I am a huge fan of my friends and family.  Never take anything for granted. Cancer does not define me, but how I live and fight with cancer does. And one thing I know for sure cancer doesn’t stand against this woman!
