DeLores’ approach is not pie in the sky. On the health front, she is no stranger to obstacles. First it was endometriosis when she was just newly married. She had to have a complete hysterectomy at age 25. It was a brutal blow for a woman who wanted children more than anything. Then several years later her husband was diagnosed with leukemia. Doctors told him he would need a bone marrow transplant and gave him less than one year to live. That diagnosis was given to him nearly twenty years ago. Her husband did not have the transplant and is in good health today.
In 2008, she experienced the anxiety and worries of finding a lump in her breast. She had surgery and the lump was benign. DeLores was able to stay positive and overcome her obstacles through her faith and being equipped with knowledge about the diseases. She also practiced positive self-talk and read inspirational materials.
“We must not allow our health diagnoses to be a reason to stay sad, stressed and feel like it is the end of the world. It is the beginning of a different life but not a bad life,” she says.
“It is critical to stay positive and be proactive and find ways to cope with the diagnosis and treatment. There are positive things that can be taken away from the experience of having breast cancer. It can be an opportunity to grow and help others who have similar health challenges and gain a new appreciation of life.”
