Nancy Evans Ergeson : read her story plz

FB merupakan media sosial alam maya yang tidak punya sempadan . Kita boleh berhubung secara `online' tanpa batasan jarak  dan masa malah  perbezaan Bahasa, Agama & bahasa tidak menjadi halangan untuk kita berkawan.
Nancy Evans Ergeson adalah seorang `nenek' berusia 60 tahun telah meminta menjadi ahli kepada CANCER SURVIVORS grup di FB dengan harapan untuk berkongsi kisah & pengalaman beliau sebagai seorang cancer survivor.

berikut adalah catatan asal Nancy yg saya ambil dr CS FB Grup:

Back in 2009 they found cancer on my vocal cords. I had lost my voice and blew it off. Raising 3 grandkids I thought this was the problem. Nope, I was sent for surgery and got the news. During my treatment I had no help with the kids. I kept each appointment for Rad.Getting home in time to get the kids off to school and a little nap so I could be moving by the time they came home. I have not made my follow up appointment to have this nasty tube stuffed down me yet. I got a free pass last appointment but now need to do this again. I will toss my cookies on the dr and he knws that.

I did 28 treatments on my vocal cord area. I did very well up to about the20th. Treatment,then I began a slow burn with my skin just falling off. I wore a large facial/breast masks each morning. Four years later I still have a slight mask from the burns. My voice has not returned fully. I will check my files and see if I can find a picture.

I am still moving along, feeling my age as I will turn 60 in a few months! Cancer was a journey I did not expect, I was scared to death on the day I laid on the table and had the mask formed to my body, tears just feel, not knowing the unknown. I had amazing doctors and radiologist working with me. I was caught early is why I did not do any chemo. Not long after I completed treatment my daughter was left to be a young widow because lymphoma took her husband away to watch over us. My mother also made this journey with very early breast cancer, I will say now at the age of 84 she is one rocking great grandma! I love my life, the only thing I wish for is more of a voice back. I am not able to talk for long periods of time, still need to watch what I eat. I don't know the amount of damage the Rad did on the inside since I still can toss my cookies with certain foods.

I have raised my own children one who was born profoundly deaf, and another the model child. Now the grandkids I am raising have several different problems. the oldest has aspergers, the middle child is a Diabetic type 1, and the little guy has behavior problems. I deal with a challenge each and everyday. Taking on Cancer was just another one of them. I take one day at time with life now. My kids are keeping me young. Along with the three kids I am raising I took in my daughter and her two young child when her husband passed away. The ages of the kids today are 4, I really must be crazy to to this but this is the person I am

Tuesday morning I will call and get my check up, need to clear the day since it wipes me out. I have a very line lighted line down my nose into my vocal cords to check things out. I have to take meds to get this check done since I am a puker and will toss my cookies on the dr. No meds = no check. I need to be healthy to take care of the kids. I am happy to say that after all of this ordeal I have gained weight. Not so happy about that but my drs. will be thrilled. They can be damned as I do some exercise each day to maintain. Just need to shake off the cold winter months of soth movement. I live in the cold Northwest of the USA and we get cold early. this grandma makes snow mountains for the kids to slide down in the winter. We create games to play since it's so cold outside. Our kids can't even have outdoor play at school because of the cold. I am a Nerf gun grandma,lego building grandma.

Semoga kisah beliau ini dapat memberi suntikan semangat & kekuatan baru kepada kita semua. Jangan Takut ALLAH kan ada!

dan bila aku sakit DIA yang menyembuhkan ku

basahkan lidah dengan zikrullah ... ia pengubat jiwa yg gundah .... tis is my mantra since n during my treatment until date  selamat beramal

apabila dalam ketakutan .. hilang arah dan rasa amat bersedih .. ingatlah Bahawa kita tidak Keseorangan . ALLAH SWT sentiasa ada bersama kita. Apabila kita terlalu disibukkan dengan hal keduniaan .. adakalanya Solat & ibadah  tidak dijaga dengan sempurna.. kita tidak berusaha untuk  menjalinkan hubungan yang baik dengan Pencipta. Bagaimana kita ingin merasakan `kehadiranNYA' dekat dengan kita... inilah yang saya rasai. Terasa sempit .. gelap .. terasa seolah-olah dihempap oleh dunia. Dengan solat .. doa & zikrullah hati akan menjadi tenang ... percayalah ... amalkan ... sentiasa beristighfar memohon keampunan & pertolongan ALLAH.

Doa penyembuh:
  1.  Baca Al Fatihah 1 kali
  2.  Ayat Kursi 1 kali
  3.  Selawat Syifa' 7 kali
  4.  Baca ayat dibawah 7 kali

وَقَالَ رَبُّكُمُ ادْعُونِي أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِي سَيَدْخُلُونَ جَهَنَّمَ دَاخِرِينَ{60}غافر
Maksudnya: Dan Tuhan kamu berfirman: “Berdoalah kamu kepadaKu nescaya Aku perkenankan doa permohonan kamu. Sesungguhnya orang-orang yang sombong takbur daripada beribadat dan berdoa kepadaKu, akan masuk neraka Jahannam dalam keadaan hina. (Surah al-Ghafir:60)

Get sensitive - your body is trying to `tell u something!"

(copy paste from FB)
Unusual bleeding from the vagina
If you notice bleeding from the vagina between periods, after sex or at any time if you are past your menopause, make an appointment to see your doctor. They could be caused by many things, but may also be signs of womb or cervical cancer so it's important to get checked out.
Cervical cancer
The number of women diagnosed with cervical cancer has fallen over the years, thanks to the cervical screening programme (the 'smear' test). The programme, which is open to women from their 20s to their 60s, can prevent cervical cancer by picking up changes which, if left untreated, could develop into the disease. It can also detect cervical cancer early, by spotting early signs in women who haven't yet developed any symptoms. It's important for all women to take part in cervical screening, including those who've been vaccinated against HPV. 

If you notice any unusual bleeding from the vagina, see your GP or nurse, even if you've recently had a 'smear' test. It may be nothing to worry about, but it's better to play safe.

Other signs to look out for are:
Any unpleasant vaginal discharge
Discomfort or pain during sex

Womb cancer
Womb cancer is the most common of the gynaecological cancers affecting women and the number of women developing the disease is increasing. As well as abnormal bleeding, other signs to look out for are:
Any unpleasant vaginal discharge
Pain in the abdomen or pelvis

If you notice any of these things, or anything else that's unusual for you, make an appointment to see your doctor. Chances are it's not cancer, but it's better to be on the safe side and get checked out.
Reducing the risk of womb cancer 
Lifestyles play an important role in a woman's risk of womb cancer. You can help reduce your risk of developing the disease by:
Keeping a healthy body weight
Being physically active

Doing these things won't develop mean you won't develop womb cancer, but they can help to stack the odds in your favour.

Jangan remehkan amalan yg ikhlas!

أَنَّ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ
سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ قَرَصَتْ نَمْلَةٌ نَبِيًّا مِنْ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ فَأَمَرَ بِقَرْيَةِ النَّمْلِ فَأُحْرِقَتْ فَأَوْحَى اللَّهُ إِلَيْهِ أَنْ قَرَصَتْكَ نَمْلَةٌ أَحْرَقْتَ أُمَّةً مِنْ الْأُمَمِ تُسَبِّحُ

Dari Abu Hurairah r.a. katanya: Saya mendengar Rasulullah s.a.w. bersabda: “Seekor semut menyengat salah seorang Nabi. Nabi itupun menyuruh mencari sarang semut itu lalu dibakar. Allah lalu menurunkan wahyu kepada Nabi itu: “Sesungguhnya hanya seekor semut yang menyengat engkau dan engkau bakar salah satu umat yang bertasbih kepada Tuhan!” Riwayat Bukhari

Walaupun yang dianiaya itu hanyalah seekor semut yang kecil pada pandangan manusia tetapi ia tetap salah satu ciptaan tuhan yang Maha Agung, bukan sahaja semut akan tetapi semua makhluk tuhan lain juga begitu. Mereka yang mengerti akan hakikat penciptaan dengan sebenar-benarnya (sifat ini biasanya dimiliki oleh para kekasih Allah iaitu orang-orang yang arif), mereka akan lebih mengasihi dan menghargai semua ciptaan Allah berbanding dengan orang lain.

Disebutkan bahawa Allah mewahyukan kepada Nabi Musa as.: Tahukah Kamu mengapakah Aku mengangkat engkau sebagai Nabi yang terus mendengar kalamKu? Jawab Musa: Engkau yang lebih mengetahui. Bersabda Tuhan: Ketika Aku larikan semua kambing Nabi Syuaib yang kau pelihara itu, sehingga dengan susah payah engkau mengejar kambing-kambing itu untuk mengembalikannya, tetapi kemudian setelah kembali semuanya engkau tidak merasa jengkel marah, maka itulah sebabnya.

Dalam Hadith lain diceritakan, seorang pelacur yang memberi minum kepada anjing, tiba-tiba Allah bersyukur kepadanya dan mengampunkan semua dosanya. Demikianlah kehormatan dari kurnia-kurnia besar dari Allah itu, tidak dapat dicapai oleh manusia, dan selalu diberikan oleh Allah secara tiba-tiba, supaya tidak ada orang berbangga dengan amal perbuatannya.

Kasihani lah dirimu dan semua makhluk tuhan disekeliling mu, semuga Allah mengasihimu dan membuka bagimu jalan bagi mengetahui pelbagai rahsia penciptaan dan kehidupan. Tidak dibukakan oleh Allah melainkan kepada mereka yang sangat beruntung di dunia dan akhirat.
