A miracle of Minerva’s status

10 operations.
135 chemotherapy sessions.
2,000 pills.
1,095 days.
3 years.
3 bald heads.
And many many tears.

This is what Minerva wrote:

“3 years of fatigue .. 3 years of pain .. 3 years of torment .. but also 3 years of hope, faith and patience .. 3 years of family and friends and love .. 3 years as a test from God, and oh how sweet was this test! How sweet it is when you see your friends, your family, and your companions, by your side in the most difficult times of your life !! How sweet it is when you become closer to God and when you thank Him for everything. How sweet it is when you know that God is the only support in life, and it is a huge test because of the huge love He has for you! How sweet it is when you are suffering from pain and when you almost die, yet you find God waiting for you. He will never leave you even in the most difficult times ..
How blissful is the test of God and how ugly is cancer !!

When you think about your difficulties in life, think of Minerva.
When you think about your faith, think of Minerva.
When you think about your daily life, think about Minerva’s family and friends.

To live through all of this as a teenager and be able to maintain your smile and laugh, is a miracle. A miracle of Minerva’s status.

10 operations, 135 chemotherapy sessions, 2,000 pills, 1,095 days, 3 years, and 3 bald heads but CCCL did not leave you.
