"You'll be fine...You are my sister..."

Karel,

What a story of hope! Your answer to your prayers was such a blessing. Thank you for sharing how God has blessed you in leadership towards creating more awareness for breast cancer.

FIVE WORDS TURNED MY LIFE UPSIDE DOWN.

ON AUGUST 8, 2005, I WAS TOLD " YOU HAVE MALIGNANT BREAST CANCER" .

THOSE WORDS TOSSED ME INTO A DARK PIT OF DESPAIR AND HOPELESSNESS.

I TALKED WITH GOD ABOUT MY DILEMMA, AND HE ANSWERED MY PRAYERS IMMEDIATELY... PROVIDING ME WITH A GREAT SURGEON, AND A FANTASTIC ONCOLOGIST.

MY ONCOLOGIST EXPLAINED THE CHEMOTHERAPY TREATMENTS, AND THEN SAID SOMETHING THAT GAVE ME HOPE.

HE TOLD ME THAT "YOU WILL BE FINE".... "YOU ARE MY 'SISTER', AND I WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU".

I ENDURED 4 ROUNDS OF CHEMO... A MASTECTOMY... 4 MORE ROUNDS OF CHEMO... 33 RADIATION TREATMENTS.... THE TYPICAL HAIR LOSS, AND REACTION TO THE DRUGS.

MY STORY AIRED ON THE TELEVISION STATION WHERE I WORK,SIX MONTHS AFTER MY DIAGNOSIS.

THE NEXT DAY AS I WAS HEADING TO WORK I NOTICED A CHURCH. ON ITS ROOF IS A WHITE CROSS, AND ON THIS PARTICULAR DAY THERE WERE CLOUDS FORMING. JUST ABOVE THE CROSS WAS A CLOUD IN THE SHAPE OF A HEART, THE KIND YOU WOULD SEE ON VALENTINE'S DAY. IT WAS A SIGN FROM GOD THAT HE LOVED ME. IT WAS ALSO A PROMISE THAT HE WOULD ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF ME.

HE'S DONE THAT, AND CONTINUES TO BLESS MY LIFE EVERY DAY.

IN 2006, I WAS THE HONORARY CHAIRWOMAN FOR THE CATTLE BARON'S GALA.

IN 2007, I WAS THE HONORARY CHAIRWOMAN FOR THE SUSAN G. KOMEN RACE FOR THE CURE.

IN 2008, I WAS THE HONORARY CHAIRWOMAN FOR THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY'S RELAY FOR LIFE.

AND IN 2010, I WILL SERVE AS CHAIRWOMAN FOR THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY'S RELAY FOR LIFE IN WICHITA FALLS.
