It doesn't seem fair to get healthy and then end up with cancer, does it?
Wish I knew a "cause" - then I could fix it. But I don't, and I can't. I can only do what the doctor tells me, which feels kinda helpless. First a lumpectomy on the mildest of breast cancers, a small inter-ductal cancer. Then the news that the lump had "invasive" qualities means a dye test to see which lymph glands have also been affected and an immediate surgery afterward to remove those lymph glands.
The only thing I know to do is try and be even a little healthier. Though I lost a lot of weight last year, I didn't always make great food choices. I didn't have a diet filled with a lot of fruit and veggies; I've always eaten far too much meat and processed foods. So I'll try to do better there, keep on exercising the best I can, and trust that God is with me helping me and my body is getting even better at healing itself.
