In May 2012 I was diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer that’s difficult to overcome. My journey with chemotherapy, surgery and radiation treatments lasted for eight months and finally ended, positively, on January 30, 2013.

Initially, fear and frustration gripped our family as we faced the unknown. I immediately called CHM to discuss finances. My mind was put at ease when a staff member told me that I was a Gold level member with Brother’s Keeper. I didn’t need to worry about money; instead, I was encouraged to focus on getting well.

My doctor was amazed at how well I coped with chemotherapy treatment. I never was hospitalized and didn’t vomit even once. I did regain some weight I had lost, but I praised God that I had no side effects from the medications. I clung to the Bible verses, “The prayers of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16) and “My God shall supply all your needs” (Phil. 4:19).

My children and grandchildren were a great encouragement to me. After I lost my hair due to treatment, one of my sons said, “Hair or not, I love you the way you are.”

Christian Healthcare Ministries was a blessing during my journey. We were encouraged with many cards and prayers—without counting, I know we received more than 100 cards from CHM members. CHM also helped us financially by sharing all of our expenses so far for treatment in the amount of $131,510 after $59,380 in bill discounts. A pharmaceutical company even gave me its medication for free—to the tune of $54,000!

As of this writing, I am still healed. God has been very gracious to me. My cancer doctor, who is Muslim, told me at my six month follow-up appointment, “Your attitude and your faith have healed you.” Yes, this is the day that my Lord has made and I rejoice because His mighty hand has restored me to health!

Thank you to the CHM members who came through for us. Thank you for being there, for lifting us up in prayer and for giving faithfully. We could rest peacefully knowing that we would be taken care of financially. May God bless each one of you and may 2014 be filled with peace, joy and love.
