Jewell’s Story

Site created on October 13, 2019

Welcome to the site I never intended to create and my story that I didn't know I would tell. Thanks for sharing this journey with me through my uncharted territory of breast cancer. So many brave women have blazed the trail before me - - including my mother and sister. But until it happens to you personally, breast cancer is just the pink-clad theme of October. Now that I've met it face to face, I know so much more about this dreadful disease. But more importantly - I know so much more about myself. The very second this journey started, my heart's stance was that I WILL NOT BE SHAKEN. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my defense and my strong tower; I will not be shaken. (Psalm 62:2).  Thank you for offering your time, your love, and your prayers to me and my family. I appreciate them more than I can convey with words. 💕, Jewell

Journal entry by Jewell Williams

I am 4 days post-op, and I had so many blessings today: First shower and new PJs, food by friends (beef stew for lunch,  lasagna & garlic bread for dinner), surprise deliveries (a Christmas cactus, a basket of honey foods and remedies, flowers, a candle, cards) and friends reaching out with phone calls and texts. 

treasure the little things and take nothing for granted. God is so good to me. And - I really like my new body 🙌. I can’t believe this much is behind me. No matter what you are going through, YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOU THINK YOU ARE.

I have to remind myself to walk and to rest. The pain I have had - until now - has all been associated with where the drains are coiled inside my body. But today’s pain has been sharp, shooting nerve pains up and down my spine. I’ve changed positions and continued my meds. Walking certainly helps. Still, the collective pain hasn’t been as bad as a c-section! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

At least it’s prime time for Hallmark, because what else do I have to do? 🤷‍♀️ He has kept me as His own, and I still am not shaken.♥️🙏
