Day 6: Tina Dadas

Philippians 4:13
"I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me"

On January 13, 2023 I went in for a routine mammogram. When I arrived the tech asked if I had been experiencing any pain and I shared that I had. She asked me to wait so she could contact my doctor and have the script changed from a routine mammogram to a diagnostic mammogram. This was the first miracle I saw. If the tech hadn’t asked about pain, I wouldn’t have mentioned it. And if the mammogram hadn’t been switched from routine to diagnostic, the cancer that was ultimately discovered, wouldn’t have been detected. The ensuing surgery proved that I had stage 2 breast cancer.
Next, I had a few scans and started chemotherapy. A CT scan showed a growth in my neck which then required a follow-up MRI. This growth was still there but the doctor did not want to biopsy it since I was receiving chemo.
Several months later I was scheduled for a repeat MRI. The Sunday before the MRI I came to church, and after the service I asked for prayer for my situation. Michael and Dale prayed for me. Michael touched my neck, prayed God would remove the growth. This is the second miracle God deserves glory for; the results showed the growth was no longer there.
While receiving chemotherapy, I experienced allergic reactions to three different types of chemo. Treatment was very difficult and I was only able to receive 7 out of 16 doses. I like to think that this was God protecting me from the harmful side effects of the drugs.
I completed radiation three weeks ago and now hope to leave cancer behind me. There were many times when I was so weak, I could barely make it to the bathroom without help. I would whisper my Bible verse (shown above) to remind myself that it is possible to get through this with the help of my Lord and Savior.
God blessed me with many helpers. And at times I felt overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and support. I hope in the future that I’ll be able to help others in the same manner that I received.
I am thankful for so many things over this past year. And I was refreshed and reassured when I was able to see God’s hand working throughout this ordeal.
"Dear Heavenly Father, I see the work of your hands throughout my life and especially the last year.  I am thankful for your blessings and interventions. I pray for my eyes to be open to more of what you’re doing in my life and for wisdom and obedience to act when you’re nudging me to speak or share the gospel. I pray for opportunities to share my journey and the gospel.  Lord Teach Me Your Will.  Please open the eyes of my family so they can see Gods miracles and they would desire a closer relationship with you. I pray that my husband Chris and sons Christopher and Alex are truly saved  and they would have a personal encounter with you and choose to live their lives growing closer and closer to you. I pray that although I did not receive all the prescribed chemotherapy, the cancer has not spread and that it will not come back.  In Jesus name, Amen."
