Beyond breast cancer is where so many of us are who have been impacted by this disease. This has happened partly because we learn more about ourselves and are not afraid to take the power to make life saving decisions for ourselves. I chose the word 'beyond' with emphasis on describing how to arrive at or get to the further side of a diagnosis. I have had the opportunity to meet amazing Doctors. Many choose the profession looking to do the greatest good but we must always remember they too are imperfect. Doctors are practicing medicine but we are the experts of our bodies and have the most knowledge about ourselves. With this understanding, we can look well beyond the time point of a diagnosis of breast cancer. One of the greatest keys to looking well beyond breast cancer or any situation that tried to hinder you from walking into your destiny is to remember that we were amazing creations made by God. We are fashioned in His image and each one of us is uniquely special. If you don't already know yourself and your purpose and what you are to be while here on earth, take time to quietly reflect and consider your life. We are so much more than our physical bodies designed to live well beyond breast cancer. .
