This is my journey and my journal. It is my way of dealing, coping, sharing. It just IS!
This is all out war ~ war against breast cancer; IDC to be exact: Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma.
Thank you for everyone's prayers, love and support. I receive them with open and loving arms. My wish is that I will gain strength from you; and that I will provide strength to others and help to strip away some of the fear we each experience.
And now that treatment is nearly one year behind me, it's time to log in some of the fun stuff; rather than just talk of cancer and doctors.
LIVESTRONG: I am strong. I am loved. I am healthy. WE WILL WIN!
Have you or your loved one had their annual mammogram? PLEASE, don't put it off. Speaking from experience, I highly recommend monthly self exam as well.
WARNING: Contents may be uplifting, sad, funny, scary, downright depressing ~ THAT IS CANCER .... at it's best, at its worst.
PLEASE ~ Feel free to share this blog with anyone who is interested to learn about my journey. While I welcome their support, I hope that by sharing this experience freely to the universe I may help to support others by breaking down some of the barriers and fear associated with breast cancer and the treatment.
Not only is it the Vitamin C that is beneficial, but ...
Lemons and limes contain disease-fighting compounds known as limonoids. The human body is able to readily absorb a specific, long-acting limonoid known as limonin, according to the US Agricultural Research Service. Both lemons and limes contain nearly as much limonin as they do vitamin C. The results of a 2001 culture study summarized in "Nutrition and Cancer," revealed that this compound, at a concentration of 100 mcg/mL, was effective at partially inhibiting the growth of human ovarian cancer cells and inducing the death of breast cancer cells.
