From Triple Negative to Triple Blessed!
Hello! My name is Karen Rodríguez. I'm the one wearing high heels to the chemotherapy.  I have been blessed with a diagnosis of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer.  What the enemy meant for evil, God has turned into an opportunity to strengthen my faith, trust, and redemption. I have two daughters who I love with all my heart, a great-believing man by my side, and a beautiful support system of family and friends around the world.

¡De Triple Negativo a Triple Bendecida!

Tengo dos hijas a las que amo con todo mi corazón, un gran hombre creyente a mi lado y un hermoso sistema de apoyo de familiares y amigos alrededor de todo el mundo.

Journal entry by Karen Rodriguez

Hello there!! 
Bronchoscopy with biopsy, check ✅

Once again, I met amazing nurses, and the doctor was beyond kind. 

So, it wasn’t the best news but, I still need to wait for the biopsy results. 

It wasn’t mucus but two masses. One of the bronchial tubes it’s completely obstructed.  For sure, I will need surgery to cut out those tubes.  According to the doctor, it isn’t going to affect my life or performance as it hasn’t affected it in the present. It doesn’t cause pain or breathing problems.  I guess I was blessed to find out with a routine chest/heart X-Ray.

I already decided not to have more chemo or radiation if that is the case.  And about the surgery, I’ll do more research. 

I’m in peace and total acceptance.  I believe in God, and I’m happy with whatever the outcome of this will be. 

Have a blessed and wonderful week! ❤️❤️❤️

With love,
