Survivor of the Month – January 2018
I’m 37 years old, and happily married. I have 5 amazing children: Homero, 16, Renan, 12, Selena, 11, David, 6, and America, 5. I was diagnosed with breast cancer the first week of September 2015.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer the news was devastating but from the moment I was told I accepted it and decided to fight with all I had. I had no idea what was going to happen but I had faith that God would not abandon me and that he would allow me to go through this for a good cause. My life took a complete turn for the better. Many people with big hearts have came into my life and always motivated me to continue fighting and never give up.
After having undergone 16 chemotherapies, 29 radiation treatments, and breast surgery removal I can say that I’m cancer-free thanks to the glory of God for never leaving my side and putting many angels in my path.
