Every February millions if not billions of individuals around the world celebrate WORLD CANCER DAY. This year it falls on Tuesday, February 4 with the aim to save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about cancer, and pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action against the disease.
In the summer of 2012 I was diagnosed with cervical cancer that had spread into my lymphnodes and areas of my right hip bone. After a year and a half battle fighting I was diagnosed again with cervical cancer that had spread into my right lung. So another year of fighting cancer for me was almost more than I could bear.
During that entire time I never lost hope or thought of giving up. God had promised me that this was not going to kill me and I believed Him. I made a promise back that I would use this cancer journey for His glory and I am proud to say 7 years after that first diagnosis, me and God have got this thing and I praise Him for the victory over death, hell, and the grave! Team Jesus 100%
While I am happy to glory in God's defeat over my cancer battle, there are millions around the world who lose their fight. Trust me when I say this brings no joy to my heart, it actually hurts a lot. With all the "so-called" cancer research going on around the world, can someone please explain why cancer related diagnosis (45,000 daily around the world) AND deaths are increasing on a daily basis. It makes no logical sense if America is pumping so much money into finding cures that millions of families are still saying goodbye to loved ones. This is not a political blog post, but one to raise awareness of the problem and encourage others to take care of themselves.
