    I am sorry this is happening to you. I got the same diagnosis a few months ago and had my surgery 3 weeks ago. Faith in God is everything. The love and support of family and friends is priceless. I am doing well and I pray you will be well too.

    I had a sense this is where your journey was going. Don’t know you personally only following on Twitter but as a 12 yr breast cancer survivor myself, I celebrate & applaud you’re “coming out”. You didn’t state what stage you had, I can proudly tell you I was a stage 3, did my mastectomy, 11/14 lymph nodes were compromised, did my chemotherapy, radiation along with immunotherapy treatments and I’m still here celebrating life. Just a word of advice which I follow to this day I’m sure you’ve chosen the best oncologist recommended to you but you have to put your complete trust in them, listen and obey their instructions and they along with the guidance & coverage of the greatest with carry you thru this journey. Nuff love, prayers and respect💚🙏💯💝

    Good day Chelan,
    It was by chance that I stumbled upon your Twitter handle some time ago but am so happy that I did. You commentary about even mundane events are refreshing and enlightening.

    From what I have seen of you so far, I find that you are kind, levelheaded, smart, obviously beautiful and endearing.

    I am sorry to hear of your current diagnosis but am also pleased that you have a positive outlook on this. Just as you know that your family and close friends are there for you, know as well that those of us who only know you from Twitter are there as well.

    Stay strong @mamachel, you will beat this!!

    When my mom was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, I couldn’t swallow and it wasn’t even my body. Didn’t even mention her ‘condition’ to anyone for months. I get where you’re coming from in terms of letting the public know. I cannot imagine you going through this especially with COVID-19 spreading like wild fire. Just know that whatever emotions you feel, they are justified. Cry if you need to, write as much as you want but, whatever you do, don’t bottle up your feelings.

    I have two questions and I hope they’re not too invasive, did your doctors say what would have caused this? Like, is there a family history? And do you think women below 40 should start getting mammograms?

    I will add you to my prayer list. I wish you a speedy recovery and may you be firmly back on your feet to continue slewing them on Twitter 😂.

    Hi!
    I only know you from social media and, for some reason, you are my favorite social media persons – is that a thing? Having a favorite social media person? At any rate, you are.

    I read this with a heavy heart, but was buoyed by your spirit and positive outlook. Sending positive vibrations and thoughts your way and hope surgery went well and that this is now and will remain in your past.

    Best!

    I’m so sorry to hear this Chelan. I’m somewhat at a loss for words. I’ve enjoyed your perspective on things throughout the years from blogging and twitter and this is a huge surprise and wake up call. I wish nothing but the best for you in your recovery and the fight against this monster.

  • Jodi Gabbidon

    My prayers are with you. Thank you for sharing. I pray for a successful surgery for you and that you will rise from this and be stronger than before. I would like to know, being so young, what made you do the test?

      I came across your twitter account via a retweet late last year. Suffice to say I do not know you at all but can relate wish supporting my mum through her own fight with cancer. It does take a toll mentally, even after surgery. The words of advice you’ve received are definitely on point. Through it all stay positive. I do wish you speedy recovery physically, mentally & emotionally. #chelldem

    You’ll beat this Chelan. I’ll be praying for you. Take comfort in the below scripture: So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10
