God has answered our prayers. I had a mammogram and I am good for a year. I talked to my pastor and I am going to be a witness and help others going through this situation. I have signed up for the relay of life which is sponsored by the American Cancer Society and consists of volunteers both survivors and those who are going through their journey. I feel truly blessed by all of you who responded and thank you.

Dear Lord, I come to you with thanksgiving in my heart. Lord you are in control of all things, I left up this family to you. They are facing challenge in their life, be with them and smooth the path before them. ForYou are the Great Healer of the universe. I know each one of Your children have great purpose here on earth. Shine your Mercy and Love, your Peace upon them. For I know you do not want any of Your children to suffer and worry. Satin come to deceive, steal and kill. I rebuke satin! in Your awesome name. Because You give us life to abundance.
In the name of Jesus, Amen.

emoticon Taking time out of a hectic day to pray and meditate makes life so much better and calmer. Whenever I feel stressed, I bow my head for a few minutes and say a Hail Mary. It works every time!

I will pray for you and add you to our prayer list at our church. You will be prayed for at each and every service. I hope you can take strength and a positive mind set from all the prayers of the SP and others lifting you. Your blessings started when the cancer was found so very early. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers, my friend.

Janis, I am praying for you. May God give you the strength you need to go thru this valley. I see on the mountaintop, because we know that ......What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24

Remember the scripture:

Jeremiah 29:11 "for I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not the harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Before you were diagnosed, this situation went through His hands. Rest in Him and he will carry you through.

I have a few friends that have faced what you are facing and today they are Cancer free, they are Survivors ~ Same as you.

I Will keep you in my prayers all the way through.

I just read your message and my prayers are being sent up for you right now. The power of prayer can move mountains! :The Lord is my roch, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised:" emoticon

Prayers to you, you can survive this. I know more survivors than those who have not. Try your best to keep a positive attitude, that will help.

I also lifted you up in prayer,for healing and peace of mind. Whatever trials I face in life, I don't stress nearly as much as I used to because God is bigger than any problem I may have.
God bless!

Thank you. Your story makes me feel better. I know I will get past this but if helps to hear how others have dealt this disease.

I am an 8 year survivor of breast cancer, so I am here to tell you, it can be treated and beaten! You may not feel like a survivor yet, but you are.

You are in one of the worst stretches right now, having the diagnosis, but awaiting the surgery which will tell you and your doctors so much about your cancer and what it is doing. It gets much less terrifying after the surgery and your doctor can tell you specifics of stage and type, and make a treatment plan. Hang in there!

I too have lost family members in the last ten years, two brothers to cancer (colon and myeloma), a SIL to ovarian cancer, mom to heart disease, and dad died in his sleep. It just wears you down, doesn't it?

Let me know if you want to hear more of my story; I know we are each unique, but this path is easier when shared.

(actually, I had two unrelated cancers at the same time, so I also survived colon cancer. Weird and rare.)

My sister and I both had the scare, though we were both negative after biopsy. I know that you are scared now. Please know that you have a lot of supporters and prayers at this site, from people who have gone through it, and people who haven't. Stay strong!

Thank you Janice. Your prayers and encouragement helps me so much.

I sent up a prayer for you today to the only one that can heal. I ask God to guide your physician in keeping you safe. My sister was diagnosed several years ago with stage 4 breast cancer and today she is doing well. I will certainly remember you in prayer.

I have been diagnosed with breast cancer. I really need your prayers and support at this time. I'm sure I will survive this as God led me to a very special radiologist who found my cancer while it is very small. Can hardly see it on the sonogram. I am very stressed with all that has happened to me in the past two years .My sister in law died right before Christmas 2009 from cancer, my daughter died at age 44 of natural causes went to bed and didn't wake up, my 88 year old friend has been scammed out of her life savings and has non Hodgkin lymphoma and now I have cancer. My surgery date is March 20.
