Meet Rosy

Diagnosed at 47, Stage 2

I’m a widow. At 45 I was misdiagnosed. A mammogram screening missed the lump. I was told it was a cyst, that it was hormonal, and that it would go away.

After two years with the lump growing, I took charge and went to a different Doctor. They did a biopsy and the results came back...

I was diagnosed with breast cancer: Invasive ductal carcinoma, stage 2, grade 3.

I did genetic testing because I have 2 sisters and a teenage daughter and I wanted peace of mind.

Thank God my cancer wasn’t genetic, making me the first in my family to have cancer.

I consulted three different doctors because I was in denial, but finally, I met a great team of Doctors at Mays UT MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Chemo: June 8, 2017 - October 2017

Successful Partial Mastectomy November 2017

13 lymph nodes removed (By the grace of God, all were negative)

Radiation: February 2018 - March 9th, 2018 (I was given an awesome certificate!)

​I felt very proud and blessed because God had my back all the time.

I am currently in active treatments (Herceptin + Zoladex) and I should say with pride and joy that there is No Evidence of Disease!

My routine to keeping cancer cells dormant are: Prayer, exercise, eat a balanced diet.

I have integrated weights to my exercise routine and I walk faithfully. I call them my "faithful4Life" walks. I laugh more, pray more, and forgive more.

​My diet is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle to help me restore my health! This is my story and I am very blessed to share it with you!
