October 14, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Not all of our lovely ladies taking part this year were able to attend the September 28th event in person.

We feel it is important their stories be told so they sent their info in and we will be sharing them 

with you as well over the coming days.

 

We all have our own journey, struggles, and beliefs.

While our paths may have taken us on a route we didn't won't to take, We all had choices to make.

We have all shed our own amount of tears or reached our own goals and successes at different times and ways.

Some of us may have asked why me? Others may have said why not me.

We all have our own unique stories; however the common theme is....Breast Cancer. 
Please take a moment to read in the next following days Our stories of hope, faith,
Courage, strength, determination, resilience.
We have been bound together; We are Pretty in Pink-Sisters in Pink. We are Survivors!

Meet the beautiful Jean Briggs Livesay

"From Grace to Glory"

"Imagine this...Breast Cancer Month!  In October of 1993 I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma, those dreaded words no one ever wants to hear; 'Breast Cancer'.  It was by the grace of God that I found this knot in my right breast.  It was about the size of a green pea and as I felt it my skin would move but the knot wouldn't.  It never became sore but I though hmmmm....what's going on here?  No one in my family ever had breast cancer, no history here.  Well my first and only thought.....I WANT IT OUT!  With that being said, I chose to have a mastectomy and the Dr removed 9 lymph nodes.  Now here comes the miracle part....'no cancer found in lymph nodes, no chemo and no radiation' as this was God's gift of grace to me.  

 

For 21 years I was right on track faithfully getting my yearly mammogram when in April of 2014 the technician had asked for more pictures.  The ultrasound showed a mass in my left breast.  I did not feel this pea size not as it was detected from an ultrasound.  Once I knew it was there, it became sore to touch. (let me just stop here for a moment...I cannot express enough..EARLY DETECTION SAVES LIVES...please get your mammogram)  I was diagnosed once again with invasive ductal carcinoma, 'breast cancer'.  My heart was just about the heaviest it had been since 1993.  Again my first though....I WANT IT OUT so I chose to have a mastectomy and this time the Dr removed 2 lymph nodes.  now 21 years later here comes another miracle...'no cancer found in lymph nodes, no chemo and no radiation' as this now God's gift, 'From Grace to Glory'.  What are the chances of this happening twice in a lifetime? No chances, only God could have looked ahead in time and knew the outcome.  What an amazing God we serve.  To Gob Be The Glory and use me to help others along the way.  I can't ever remember being so grateful at this point in my life.  Surrounded by love once can only feel from the heart.  God's got this you know, that's what I kept telling everyone.  God's got this!  Always praying for a cure...God Bless."
