Mercedes' Story

On January 18, 2023 I received the news that would mark a before and after in my life. I remember being at home in bed it was 8:30am when I received the call that the biopsy performed was cancer. My husband in bed next to me heard me crying, 10000 thoughts rushed through my mind. It was like my breath was taken from me.

Side effects

Mercedes side effects included fatigue and neuropathy.

Mercedes Advice

Please if you feel or see any changes seek medical treatment early.

One day at a time. Take time for yourself. Take care of yourself. Seek God and He will give you peace.
