This is my testimony and I am sharing it with you…
The moment I was dx of breast c
last 6/8/2011. I completely surrendered to God. I accept my Lord and Saviour 7/5/2011 and it’s almost one year!. The day before I had my massive surgery. I must tell you that my mama came to CA from VA to be with me, gave up everything for me (including her job) and stayed with me, took care of me in every step of the way. She’s a selfless woman an amazing mother! I’m blessed to have her. I thank God for giving her to us.
Few weeks after my surgery, my mama will pray and will apply warm blessed coconut oil to my head, my arms, armpit area where 34 lymphnodes were removed, only one was positive, my back where I have 9 inches cut (latissimus dorsi flap), my other breast so that it will remain free of anything, abdominal area, down to my feet, every night that is!
During my 8 hardcore tx, every 21 days, my childhood friend, family friend, my son’s godmother Mayleen Chiong will pray for me lift me up and the chemo meds I’m receiving to Our Lord each and every time I go for my battle. I wanted to share with you that during those 8 txs, I did not have any they so called “chemo” side effects…I cannot relate at all.
I had no nausea, no vomiting, no metallic taste, etc etc. I eat well and I walked with mama everyday after my tx for at least 30 minutes. I was hospitalized once, after changed of chemo meds (taxotere) my WBC count was 0.9
I had “Neutropenic fever” common to chemo patients like me. I did not have to get neupogen shots. When MO saw me at the hospital, He said I should because day 2 my WBC is still critical. I told him, I don’t want to…I told him I’m praying for my WBC to go up and it will, So I claimed! We compromised, that if my WBC still does not go up the next day. I will get the shot. The next day came and my WBC was 1.7! and kept creeping up.
I just lost my hair! I talked to God and I prayed: God please I want to keep my eyebrows! I don’t want to get scared to see myself without it…I did not lose my eyebrows, it thinned out a bit! But I did not totally lose it…He just not answered my prayers but left my eyelashes too!
Oh how kind is He. I praise Him to the highest!
The day before my massive surgery @12 midnight, I read the book of John. My mama’s pastor friend from the PHI told me to read it.
I prayed to Our Father, that please Father God, I only wanted to have one time surgery! I’m so terrified of it. He heard my prayers and I woke up from 7 hours massive surgery with immediate reconstruction.
Now, every time I pray. I will tell Him, Father God, help me to always be mindful to be faithful to you and to continue to be more appreciative each day of all the blessings you have given me. Please help me to not get mad or to get angry if You don’t answer my prayers right away, because I know that You have the best plan for each and everyone of us.
I want to thank you because during my journey You have answered all my prayers. You are amazing! I love You, I praise You, I glorify You, and I adore You. I am nothing and nobody without You.
Thank you for your time everyone!
Luv, luv always
Last week (6/12/12) one of our good friend, was dx of breast c. She has 2 little girls. This week (6/19/12) a former co worker called me and was dx of the same horrible disease :(

I can’t be under the sun just yet…after all my tx. I will be by next summer! :)
This was taken last summer July 18, 2011. Few weeks after being dx of breast c
I really miss hanging out the sun! And getting darker! Only 30 to 40 minutes and I’m darker already :)
One year: 6/8/2012
Went to 7:00 morning prayer.
My husband took me to see a movie, had sushi after. Thank you for this wonderful day Lord.
With my ever supportive nurse, my husband. I did it!!! We did it!!! This marks one year today, I remembered…when I was about to go to work, and heard about my condition! It was so surreal…my world crumbled! I surrendered that minute to My Lord and savior, Mickey was in the PHI for summer vacation. His face flashed to mine, what am I going to do? What should I tell him? When I heard the news, I thought I only have few weeks or months!!! That day, was my last day to go to work, I was off for 7 months.
I confined myself at home, lost my self esteem, I was so scared. I remembered, my journey started in radiation department. That ill fatal day…that I heard I have “possible” breast c, Dr. Simon told me, with a straight face, he used the word “possible” but you can see in his face that, he had no doubt or whatsoever that it is, indeed breast c! That same day, after my mammogram, followed my sonogram and then needle biopsy! Yes, all in a matter of hours…can’t get hold of my husband (for the first time) I believed, it’s an intervention of the Holy Spirit. Otherwise, I would not have done the needle biopsy that same day, because I was too terrified! I did not even know how I got home that day. All I know was, that My Lord, my Saviour guided me and up to now is keeping me in His Mighty hands.
I remembered this man beside me
wept for days, yes for days straight! As if someone died! I told him: “you can’t be doing that” how can I be strong, if you are not? For years he has always been the tough cookie. He realized that he needs to be strong for me and finally up to this day he is… and became mr. “meanie” again! Hahaha! Just kidding hon! :) I love you hon! Thank you, I’m blessed to have you.
One year today, I can say. I did it!!! We did it!!!
Without my Lord and Saviour. I am nothing, I am nobody, I am lost without Him. Thank You Father God, Our Healer, Our Protector, Our Rock, Our Salvation. Mama, thank you for giving up everything for me, for taking care of me for 7 months, I would not be what I am, through this journey without your motherly love and tender care. You are selfless! Thank you…I love you very much. I’m so blessed to have a mother like you. I thank God everyday for giving you to us. My Mickey, oh my son, my joy and my everything. I love you and I’m so grateful for you and how you become in our journey.
All of you, my dear friends for life, family, new found friends, MD’s, nurses, medical staff, prayer warriors,
co workers, and neighbors God bless you all and your family as well. Luv, luv always.
6/8/2012——one year!!! When I was Dx of this overrated disease. Thank you my Lord and savior for giving me an opportunity to know you more, to be more faithful to you. I’m deeply humbled for choosing me, for restoring not just my health but my spirit. I love You, I adore You, I praise You and I glorify you. Thank you to my husband, mama, friends, family, and to our Mickey.
I love you all always.
