    18 years ago I was diagnosed with AML Leukemia and I truely believe God was with me through it all and it brought me back into his loving arms. I was making bad choices and I honestly believe God stoped me in my tracks and let the time for recovery bring me back to him. There are so many experiences(God moments) during my treatment and recovery and just the fact that I am a survivor of cancer is proof of Gods miracles. I have a survivor tree (display it at Christmas) (I had a bone marrow transplant in 1993 and spent Christmas in the hospital) My nana bought me this little tree with mini ornaments on it and every year since then I have added an ornament to the tree (I had to get a larger tree but still display the old one as well) My nana has since gone to be with God and I know I will someday see her again as well as those loved ones and friend that have died from Cancer. I never doubted that I was going to survive my Cancer but the fear of being diagnosed with another cancer never seems to go away. I have so much faith and have been the receipent of his love and grace and healing. Yet I get scared if I feel a lump or blood work is off. The scripture that I keep in mind is from Jerimiah 30:17 but I will restore you to health and heal your wounds saids the Lord. and Mark 9:23-24 Everything is possible for him who believes………I do believe:help me overcome my unbelief(doubt). And one last one Phillipians 4:13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Someday I hope to start writing down some of those God moments on paper but not really a writer.
