My name is Rosy

My journey started 4/18/2017

What matters is that I’m alive and I’m thankful for that.

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:



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!
