On May 19th I posted a blog about my friend Heather who live in Van Wert, Ohio. She was getting chemo for her triple negative breast cancer that had advanced to stage four. The chemo was not helping and she was told to get her affairs in order. She did not give up hope. She kept her faith that there would be healing for her. I am going to repost my response to her as well as a message I received last week from her through FACEBOOK.
From "The Spec on a Pig's Butt"...blog from May 19th
Live each day to its fullest. NONE of us know when our last day will be. I am sorry it was so exhausting for you. Keep the faith and know you are healed. Just make up your mind and live your life. Put this cancer behind you. Just think of it as over. If there is something else you can do, then God will show you. In the meantime, you don't have to worry about it, because it is in God's hands not yours. Give it up to him and feel released from that burden. Tell God it is all his and if he wants you to take action in any way other than what you are doing now, to show you and make it clear. Pray for discernment to know when God is speaking. There are hundreds of prayers going up for you so don't worry. Now start living your life and enjoy every minute. Don't let this disease steal one more minute of another day with worry. God is way bigger. I truly believe that Satan is using these people, like the nurse who gave you your Neulasta shot, and maybe even the doctor... stumbling over her words. That is just Satan trying to give you the spirit of fear. Now you need to laugh at his ugly face and tell him your God is greater and by the blood of Jesus and by his stripes you are healed. Tell Satan he is messing with the wrong girl because in Christ you have no fear and "all things are possible with him who gives me strength". You tell that scum Satan that you will NOT be afraid and he is a little tiny wimpy stinky spec of dirt on a sweaty pigs butt. His "powers" are nothing compared to the works and the miracles God performs every day. And healing your cancer is nothing compared to so many of God's miracles. Satan, this is Penny, and if you are reading these words you are so stupid to think you have any way of stealing my sister Heather's hope, faith, or joy. You might as well go run and hide in Jesus' name because Heather is a strong woman of faith and when she feels weak, God has given her people like me to help pick her up again. He has given her an army of prayer warriors that are praying for her and cursing your name.....Now Heather, tell Satan to be gone in Jesus' name...and he can take his fear with him and shove it up his pitched forked tail! OK, now if the little booger decides to come back...now you know how to talk to him. I love you!---(Penny)
So many of you have wondered how she is doing since then. She made drastic changes in her diet, strengthened her faith, and eventually ended up at Cancer Treatment Centers of American in Zion, Illinois. This is the message I received from her last week.

So my point is...God is the ultimate physician. If you are stage four with any kind of cancer, do not let Satan steal your hope, faith, or joy. Do not listen to doctors who have only negative to say. God is way more powerful than any other physician, even those with the highest knowledge and deepest faith and greatest intentions. Heather's words have been copied and pasted with her permission. If you would like to read more about this go to May 19th's blog. Thanks Heather for letting me share your exciting news of God's miracles. Until next time my friends...
