“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” -Romans 12:12
Nicole Body was diagnosed sarcoma in July 2017. She has successfully defeated her disease. She runs a blog and is spreading cancer awareness.
“After diagnosis in July 2017, my husband and I relocated to Houston for me to receive chemo and surgery. We were there during Hurricane Harvey and the devastation was terrible in addition to the difficulties of fighting cancer so we really pressed into our faith and our relationship with each other to fight through the hard times. On December 13, 2017, I was to have the Whipple Procedure. A 9-inch incision was made to remove cancer only to stun my surgeon that even though a tumor showed up on the last CT scan, he could not find a trace of cancer anywhere. So as of that day, I have been cancer free by a miracle from God!”
Motivation to fight cancer
“I was motivated to fight cancer for lots of reasons. I am so in love with my husband and cherish every moment I get to have with him! I also fought for my family, friends, and the cancer fighters and those who have lost loved ones from cancer. Every breath that God has given me, I am thankful and want to live life fully! “
“Hurricane Harvey was so difficult to face for many reasons. That was hard to watch and to be so sick and feel so helpless was difficult. We had the opportunity to make a meal for a family affected by it but I was too sick to do much else but pray. Chemo was painful and exhausting causing a wide array of side effects and ER trips. The hardest part was probably when I developed a blood clot in my right jugular vein. But all of these things, we worked hard to pushed through and kept in the fight and found joy all around us. We never gave up and we never will.”
Message to other fighters
“You are not alone. You are loved, beautiful with or without hair, and you can do this. Days will be hard and tears may come, but there will be good days and blessings that will lift you up when you need it most. God is with you and you are in my prayers each night!”
