Rosalind’s Uterine Cancer Story

Rosalind’s Uterine Cancer Story

My Name is Rosalind B. Pettiford November 2, 2009 I heard the terrifying words “you have Uterine Cancer” my only symptom was bleeding on vacation with my then Husband. We drove straight to the Veterans Hospital in Brooklyn on our way home, Dr. Friedman scheduled me for a Pap smear  my Pap test was negative but Dr. Friedman said I was too old to bleed like that and he didn’t think it was my Fibroids, after having a biopsy cancer {the enemy was found} . I Had a total Robotic Hysterectomy on November 23, 2009. I was told that because my cancer was found in such an early stage that I wouldn’t  need chemotherapy or Radiation.  after my lymph modes were examined I was found to have  had a very aggressive form and would need 3 rounds of Chemo. Than after having several scans nodules were found on my thyroid, lungs, and I had a lump {negative} removed from my left breast. After a year the storm calmed down and I found purpose A Cancer Ministry was formed at my Church First Baptist of Crown Heights in Brooklyn NY and I turned my personal Journal into a Book called Battle Cancer. I am living a victorious life. recently I became a Volunteer on SHARE’S Uterine Cancer Help line. My TEST was turned into a Testimony that I pray will help others in this Battle.
