Real Life

I called TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries on a Thursday and told the staff I had found a lump in my right breast. The staff and doctors insisted on seeing me early Monday morning. Dr. Linda Flower examined me and confirmed I needed an immediate mammogram and possible biopsy. I on the other hand neglected to see the urgency in my circumstances. I came to discover later that I fit all the markers for postmenopausal breast cancer. TOMAGWA scheduled the necessary tests and I was told I had stage 2 breast cancer. No one in my family ever had breast cancer or any cancers at all. I can tell you cancer has no conscience and affects the entire family. Currently in August of 2012, I am in recovery and remission. I know without a doubt TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries and Dr. Flower played a huge role in diagnosing and finding my cancer in the early stages. My survival rate is 97% with lower than a 7% recurrence rate. The doctors, nurses and volunteers here do save people's lives. I am so thankful and full of gratitude.
