Your Story
I am a worship leader at Lifepoint Church. I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer- two lumpectomy's in April, and just started high-dose chemo this past monday (5/20), we are having a head-shaving party tonight. I have chosen to use this unexpected trial as a testimony to let God's light shine through what might otherwise be a scary and dismal time. In ALL things, may He be glorified. I've attached a video the church put together for me.
