Encouraging words for you with peritoneal cancer

Hello,   My name is Cindy Baker. In May of this year 2017 I was diaganosed with primary peritoneal cancer.  Talk about being numb.  You see, three years ago, I found out I was diaginosed with the BRAC II mutation.  I had another relitive, cousin, and then his daughter die of cancer.  In 1979 I had lost my oldest sister who was then 31, die of breast cancer.  Then in 1987, I lost my mom to endrometial cancer.  Then in 2007, I lost my baby sister to a combination of ovarian cancer and colon cancer.  I have had various close relatives die of forms of female cancers and several die of lung cancer which I found out later are also from this mutation,  Both of my mom's sisters also died of cancer.

Well for me, when I was diaganosed, I was going to church that day for a tea party.  I was one of the leaders.  When I walked in, I basiclly collapsed in tears, telling them I was just diaganosed with cancer.  I was full of asidies that made me look like I was having a baby at 64 years old...But I am someone who believes in Jesus and his promises in the Bible.   Two years prior, I alsready had a complete hysterectomy, and bilateral mysectomies to prevent me from getting the most common of cancers.  So when I was told I had some form of cancer, you can imagine just how I felt.  I told my primary Dr, how could this be, I thought I did everything to prevent it.  They said I did everything right and what I was told to do.

The following Monday, I went to a cancer Dr, whom I immediately connected with, that was a gift from God.  What a wonderful Doctor, who spent time with me and explained everything to  me and my husband.  I was still very nervous about receiving chemo, because I saw what it did to my sister.  But she was so bad, she had equiptment attached to her and was receiving it continuly.

I am telling you all of this, so you will understand where I was and what I was going through.  So much is what we worry about because we fear the unknowned.  They have come so far with treatments.  For me, right off the bat, they give you anti-nausal meds, benadryl, so no reactions, and tylenol, so I would not get a headache.  Really, the only side effect I had was I was tired.  Really tired.  So, that may have come from the cancer itself.  I went through 6 rounds of chemo, and half way through I had surgery to remove the lining in my stomach, and mine was rolled up like a candy bar and when they removed it, there was no cancer to be found, because the grace of my Father had healed me.  I truly believed in His promises in the Bible.  I never wavered that he would heal me.  My God is so gracious and truly loves us.  

Will this happen to you.  I don't know.  But I am telling you all of this so you too will look for his promises in the Bible on healing.  My mom and sisters, just didn't know he would heal them.  I did and did not doubt.

But even going through the treatments were not as bad as what you hear.  It depends on what cancer you have and what treatments you have.  I had Taxol and carboplatium.

No, it is NEVER easy when we hear the word, YOU HAVE CANCER.  Right off the bat you think you are going to die, but now more people live.  Sometimes I think it is a way God wakes you up so you will turn to Him for all your needs.  I am not trying to be on a soap box, but I am telling you what I have been going thru myself.  I am now going through autoimmunity therepy, to possibly help a relitive in the future.  Thanks for reading my post, as on the way to do more bloodwork for the therepy. 

May you have a healthy and happy new year.

 

Cindy
