My name is Roneka Taylor. I am currently a 44 year-old CANCER SURVIVOR!! I am a woman who LOOVVEESS God and KNOWS where my help comes from. I come from a single-parent household. My parents were divorced when my twin and I were 5 years old. I also have a sister two years older than me and a brother younger than me.
Eleven years ago on April 28, 2011, I received a call from my primary care doctor telling me that I had breast cancer. A few months prior to that I felt strange lumps in my left breast and was instructed by my mother-in-law to go get them checked out. After an ultrasound, mammogram, biopsy, and several other scans the results were IN!! Positive for Breast Cancer.
I was 32 at the time with two daughters. But I NEVER got angry with God. I never questioned why He would do this to me. And that was a SHOCK for me. A sense of comfort came over me and carried me through 6 rounds of Chemotherapy and 7 surgeries related to my breast cancer and an 8th on my cervix simultaneously.
I lost all my hair all over my body. But I NEVER LOST my faith. I was told that because the drugs sent my body through a chemical menopause I was done baring children. #BUTGOD blessed me with a healthy son. Today, I have three amazing children: Cortney (19), Coryn (14), and my Miracle baby Ryco (8).
December 14, 2011, I went into my doctor’s office for a checkup after completing my treatment and she matter of factly said: Well! The cancer is GONE! I didn’t hear anything after that because I was trying too hard not to shout all over her office. This coming December 14, 2022 I celebrate 11 years CANCER FREE and its NO GOODNESS of my own. It is only by God’s grace that I am here. I am happy to go on in Him.
I, through my journey also was able to find and connect with awesome supportive services like My Sister My Friend Breast Cancer Support for example and am very grateful for their support. Support does matter when you are going through.
