This is how my story begins, I hope it inspires many women. I was diagnosed with an abnormal Pap smear when I was five months pregnant with my son Angel. He's nine years old now and I'm very lucky to be alive. Over time it progressed into cancer when it could've been prevented. At the time I wasn't educated about my condition and I lived in denial that one day it could turn into cancer. So much was happening in my life during this period and I never took the time to focus on ... myself. When I finally faced reality for a bladder infection, it was too late. I was informed that I was diagnosed with cancer. As soon as I heard the word cancer, I thought of my kids. Cancer is such a horrible disease.. we took action immediately with the help of my cousins. I needed an emergency radical hysterectomy and 30 lymph nodes removed. I also had a tumor the size of a golf ball that needed to be removed as well. My surgeon thought he was successful in removing all the cancer; we thought it was gone. Little did we know the cancer had already spread to the walls of my stomach and the journey with cancer was just beginning. I was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. So now radiation and chemotherapy was needed. It's been almost four months and it's a nightmare. Everyday is a struggle. It's the hardest thing I've ever had to live through. I feel so much sadness in my heart for not taking care of myself. The only body I have is failing me. And there's not much I can do about it but fight. My life is in God's hands. I get discouraged sometimes but overall I will keep my faith and stay strong. I want to thank everyone for their support and prayer through this difficult time. I wouldn't have made it this far without you all. Please take care of yourself ladies and get regular Pap smears to detect any abnormal activity. I wouldn't wish this upon anyone. As God said, your body is your temple. Please love yourself enough to always put yourself first and take care of your health. I wish I would've did things much differently and I wouldn't be in the predictable I'm in right now. I chose to live and so I'll fight with everything I have. I love you all, stay blessed. maternity and pregnant wedding dresses
