Advice for women who were recently diagnosed: Remember to always trust God, even when you can not track him. He did not promise us SMOOTH SAILIN' ALWAYS. BUT A SAFE LANDIN' WITH HIM.

Any other information you want to add? Trials only come to make us strong. When we are faced with situations, challenges, and circumstances, remember that God is all faithful, merciful, and He always keeps his promises. When we pass a test we have testimony. God sent His word to HEAL US, and SAVE US FROM ALL destructions, this covers ALL. Not just cancer, sickness, or disease, but whatever your giant is, JESUS paid it all in full. I thank God for all my family, friends, and close circle supporters that stand with me on a daily basis as I proclaim my health, healing and wholeness. Thanks Pastor Tobias and my church family. Sheriff Jeffrey Wiley, and The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Dept. for all your support and prayers; your friendship is priceless. To my mother Eleanor P. Shivers who is the concrete pillar of our family, thanks much love to you. As I speak and say, calling those things that be not as though they were, "I BELIEVE I RECEIVE", all the blessings that God has for me. As I walk by faith, and not by sight, It is All Gods' doing and it is marvelous in my sight. Thanks to my friends at Bertrand's Pharmacy I love you back. Remember we can do all things through Christ that strengthens us, some prayer, some power, lil prayer, lil power, MUCH PRAYER, MUCH POWER. Thanks, God Bless You All I AM A SURVIVOR.
