Her doctor said, her cancer that was in remission had come back and was more aggressive. Lisa was given less than two years to live. Shocked and in disbelief while trembling within, she started to think about how her life was about to end. She was a married woman, and a young mother of two. The fear of death shattered her hope. Anxiety and despair invaded her spirit. Depression attacked her soul, and immediately she lost her peace.
Lisa asked herself whether there was any quality in two years of a life submerged in deep sorrow. Would she be watching herself descending into the abyss of emotional darkness? In the midst of this emotional crisis, she suddenly realized that breast cancer was not the battle she was facing. Her greater battle was the fear associated with the process of dying, the fate of her husband and children after her departure from this world.
Lisa made a decision not to allow the bad news to drown her heart in sorrow. Instead of wasting away at the hospital with tubes hanging from different openings, listening to noisy medical monitors, and nurses and doctors coming in and out of her room, she made a decision. She was determined that if she only had a few months to live, she would live her life to the fullest. She was determined to conquer every fear that held her soul in bondage. Lisa was going to fight, because enough is enough!
