I had a lumpectomy in February and God is keeping me when I can't keep myself. My advice to all breast cancer survivors and everyone: Whatever you are going through, just trust in God and He'll bring you out. And when it's all over, I can say I won't look like what I've been through.I want to thank God for my husband, my caretaker and best friend, James Amos, for being there for me, taking good care of me every step of the way. Keeping the promise for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and healthâ ¦ James has done just that. He treats me like a queen. I've got the best husband in the world and I love him from the depths of my soul."
