Hello world….It’s me Shelly! πŸ™‚

If you are reading this blog, it is probably because you were invited by me, another family member, friend or other acquaintance. In any event, you may or may not have known, that I was recently diagnosed with Tripple Negative, Metaplastic Breast Cancer. This is a very aggressive, high-grade breast cancer, that counts for less than 5% of all breast cancer diagnosis. Ironically, my worst fear in the beginning was not having medical insurance. By the grace of God and the many grants available to women for breast cancer screening, those fears haveΒ subsided!

My purpose and hope for writing this blog, is to inspire those that have not undergone breast disease screening, to do so at least by the age of 40. I would also like to keep loved ones up to date with my journey, as I know many of you will offer your prayers and encouragement. And if there is someone else out there going through a similar diagnosis, you are NOT alone!

Yours Truly, Love Shelly πŸ™‚


About Shelly

Hello, my name is shelly and I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I love to write so I decided to keep a journal. I also thought, creating a public blog would be a good idea to keep my family and friends up to date with my process. Just for the record, I truly believe Jehovah will deliver me from this disease that has devastated so many lives. I hope that others in similar situations will be encouraged.
