As a younger adult (37 yrs) afflicted with breast cancer, I determined immediately that "I would
live and not die" just as said in the Bible by my Lord. It took an informative and prayerful

I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1975 and was told that I would not be able tto have children. At that time I told the doctors they do what they had to do and God will do the rest. Since then I've had 4 children. In 2006 I lost my sister to cancer.
