Mildred Majors thought of cancer as a big ugly monster, and she wondered what it would do to her life.
Two years ago, she learned that something didn’t look right on a mammogram. Majors, 49, went back for a second more detailed mammogram.
She went to the appointment by herself, and listened to the news that she had stage 4 pre-breast cancer.
“After that, I didn’t hear anything else that was said,” Majors said. “I remember a fog coming over me and I couldn’t concentrate on the words and the drawing explaining everything to me.
“I felt like I was a healthy person and when I heard cancer I was devastated and afraid.”
She went for a biopsy, waited for results, and scheduled surgery. She began radiation treatments and made a decision to help her body fight the disease.
“I believe knowledge is power and after the shock wore off I started reading,” Majors said. “I learned cancer cells feed off of sugar and I changed my diet.
“Most of all I cried out to God and I realized He is watching over me.”
