Hello Fellow Sparkers,
I hope you are doing well tonight. Yesterday my doctor gave me another motivator to get as fit as I can, as quickly as I can. Due to my family's history with breast cancer, and my own health history, my doctor thinks that I may have the breast cancer gene. I will be undergoing genetic testing some time next week to confirm whether or not I have it. If I do according to the doctor, I have an 80 percent chance of getting breast cancer, a 45 percent chance of getting ovarian cancer, a 90 chance overall of getting cancer within my lifetime. If I have this gene, I will immediately start close surveillance , so we can catch the cancer , hopefully rather quickly.
Now here is how I would prefer you to pray. Believe it or not, I do NOT want you to pray that I do not have this gene. It may be God's will that I take this journey. No, rather pray for peace, no matter what the results are. Pray for my husband as he is quite concerned as well. Pray that God's good and perfect will will be done through all this.
