Golden: “In 2000 I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. After several weeks of intense abdominal pain, the tumor was discovered. However, since it was so large, the doctors thought it would be benign. When they performed the surgery, they found two large tumors that were malignant. Fortunately, they were encapsulated, Stage One, hadn’t spread.
Then in 2007 I was diagnosed with breast cancer … completely unrelated to the ovarian cancer. Again, Stage One, encapsulated, had not spread. Today, 2014, by the mercies of God I am cancer free and doing well.
What has God taught me through this journey? That no matter what happens, God loves me and is faithful. I can depend on that whether I’m sitting in a recliner at the oncologist’s with a chemo IV in my arm, or on the radiation table with big, scary machines scanning my body. It may not be what I had planned or want to do, but my Heavenly Father, my Daddy, has a bigger purpose in mind and my job is to respond with praise and thanksgiving.”
