So I guess I would have never thought that I would be doing a blog describing my fight with breast cancer.  I'm only 31 years old with a wonderful 3 year old daughter, Brenley, and an amazing husband, Chris, at home to take care of.  We hear the word "cancer" and automatically think the worst and that it will never happen to us.  The truth is that it does happen and people do fight it and conquer it every day.  I wholeheartedly believe in GOD and his amazing power and love, and this is how I have peace about this.  I believe that everything happens for a reason and that God is carrying me and will protect me and my family throughout this journey.  I humbly ask for prayers for not only myself but also for Chris, Brenley, and my friends and family that are supporting me during this time.  Thank you to everyone that has been contacting me and my family by phone, text, and e-mails.  You can't imagine how much strength and hope that gives a person.  I hope this blog helps everyone keep up with my progress and I will try to update it regularly.  I plan on attacking this full force with God's help so that he can use me to further his kingdom.  I pray that my faith will continue to be strengthened and that you will find yourself walking closer to God by coming along with me in this process.  God Bless!  Love ya'll.   Shayla
