Background Information

Hi, my name is Karen from NC. I am a “FOUR-TIME CANCER SURVIVOR OF CERVICAL, COLON, LIVER AND RECTAL CANCER”. I am writing this to help get my story out to the world, so that in return, there will be millions of people who will find Comfort, Healing and HOPE. Have you ever wondered how in the world that one person can survive so much pain and suffering in their life? Well, I would love to share with you how I went from despair to joy. Would you like to find out what it's like from a cancer patients point of view? Our bodies are miraculous!! It's amazing how much abuse, pain, surgery, poking and prodding that a body can endure. Mine has come through 14 different surgeries in just the last 14 years. Walk with me as I share my journey through this incredible ordeal. It has taken a lot of personal development on my part to get me through the trauma. My story could possibly be your story. There are probably many things that we have in common, you just haven't written yours down yet. At the age of 25, I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. At 32, I was diagnosed with a Vertebral Artery Dissection in the brain. In June of 2001, at 38, I was once again diagnosed with Cancer, this time of the Colon. In February 2002, at 39, I was diagnosed with Cancer of the Liver. I told God that I would bear the load if only I could touch one person. He allowed me to touch more than one; he has allowed me to touch thousands. Before going into surgery for the Cancer of the Liver, the doctors told me to get my affairs in order because I probably wouldn’t make it through this time. I told them that they weren’t God, and that he would decide when it was time for me to go. Little did I know that he had more in store for me, In June of 2003, at 40, I was diagnosed with Rectal Cancer. They told me I would have a permanent colostomy and basically not much of a life. They wanted me to go to counseling, but God wanted me to be the counselor. Have you ever wondered what your family member or friends are going through when they are diagnosed with cancer? There is something you can do to help. I guarantee that you will travel an emotional highway as you live through the experiences with me. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will rejoice with me as you find the answers that you have been searching for. In conclusion, I just want to sing and share my testimony with the world. My prayer is that my book will be a blessing to you and your loved ones. It has been very healing for me to write. I look forward to sharing my whole story with you in my book: One Woman’s Story: How I Survived Cervical, Colon, Liver and Rectal Cancer. Or better yet, I would love to meet you in person, so that I can share my story with you. Please contact me for further questions, or feel free to visit my website @
