When I was 15 I started to get really sick. I couldn’t function I was having severe pain in my ovaries and bladder. I would curl up in a ball and scream for hours. I saw multiple experts when finally one found out that I had multiple tumors growing on my ovaries as well as abnormal cells attacking my bladder both at the same time.

The doctor told me I wouldn’t make it to my 18th birthday that I would never have children and that I needed to have a hysterectomy and get rid of my baby making parts. I was horrified I bawled n bawled n prayed and fasted and asked God what I should do.

      “I was afraid but I listened.”

I got the response to have the tumors removed and get the abnormal cells out of my bladder but not have a hysterectomy. I dreamed I would have a little baby by my 18th birthday. I was afraid but I listened. I had surgery but not a hysterectomy. It took me forever to recover. I finally got stronger and was able to have a semi normal life.

When I was 16 I fell in love with my now husband. We had our first born around my 18th birthday. We have been together 15 years this August. I have been tumor free 12 years now. I still struggle and had a bad scare 8 years ago when pre cancer cells were found in my cervix but so far nothing has come of it.

       “I’ve learned God carries us through our darkest hours.”

I’m a proud mom of 3 beautiful children. Prayer works. I will be 32 this year and that’s a miracle. I was not supposed to live this long but here I am. Life has not been easy but it never is however I’ve learned God carries us through our darkest hours. Sometimes he calms the storm. Sometimes he lets the storm rage and calms his child. God lives. Miracles happen.
