    • POEM: Chemo by Herbert Nehrlich (6/12/2007 9:48:00 AM)

      I had breast cancer, went throught the 9 ½ surgery, had to get 21 teeth extracted, and now taking chemo. The worse part is when your hair falls out. I was dealing with all of the cancer stuff until my hair started falling out. Then every thing hit home. I still work a regular job meeting numberous of people a day. My family, friends, co-workers, and church members has helped me through my hard times so far. The one main thing to do when going through this hard ordeal in life is look on the bright side of things, atleast I am here for my family, even though I only have numbs now where breast once was, after chemo I will have new breast. Even though I feel like ½ of a woman right now, my husband still loves me for the person I am inside and not what is on the outside. Just because you change on the outside dont mean that you change on the inside. As far as my hair, well I am still losing it but hey it will save on shampoo and that extra 10 to 20 min. it took of a morning to fix it. My best advice to people going through cancer is, keep your faith strong, God allowed you to have cancer because you are his chosen one. He knew that you could deal with the pain, suffering, hard times, and sickness. Just remember only the strong ones is God's choosen few. He has worked so many mericals through my sickness. I have seen my sons saved, my daughter saved, my family come together and unite as one, and my husband really get into the word of God and live by it. I have helped many people with breast cancer cope as they start off the long trial. God will hold your hand and carry you through the times you can not walk, I know he has me. So when times gets down just look up, a prayer means a thousand words. God bless and good luck to anyone who is going through cancer. If anyone needs to talk please feel free to contact me at I will be more than happy to extend my heart and a few words of kindness to help you along the way. You never know what someone is going through until you have been there yourself.
