I am 36 and this is my journey.....
October 11th was the day of the call
With the phone in my hand I thought I might fall
At home we hugged with all of our might
And made up our minds we were ready to fight
Surgery is next but for now we must wait
One appointment after another I am starting to hate
Finally through our patience that day did come
When I awoke in recovery I thanked God I was numb
The next few weeks were very rough
Each day I told myself I had to be tough
Family and Friends helped me so much
I hope they all know my heart they did touch
Although the tumor is gone, a bad lymph node they did find
So now Chemo and Radiation weigh heavy on my mind
This next step in my journey is starting very soon
I have to get back to normal before summer this June!
They say I could be very sick and even loose my hair
Even though this sounds discouraging I\^m trying not to despair
I ask that prayers keep coming each and every day
For complete healing through the Lord Jesus Christ is the only way
I declare on this day a survivor I will be
Cancer...you will not beat me! Just wait you\^ll see!
