True Survivor


Hello my name is Latrece Jones-Cawthorne I am a 33 year survivor of head and neck cancer. Less than 3 months ago I was diagnosed with 2 brain tumors both located on the left side of my brain. Giving two options, the first to have them cut out and removed or come back in 4 to 6 months to see if there is any change. I chose to wait 4 to 6 months to see if there is a change. I was told because of the location of the 2 tumors I may begin to have seizures with or without the surgery. Well I have decided to continue to pray and give it to God. As with the can when I was little God pulled me through I keep my faith and I will be ok Sometimes just the thought is a very scary thing. Thank you for allowing me to share my story.
