Young Woman Diagnosed With Stage 4 Breast Cancer Choose Faith Over Fear

At age 34, Stephanie Seban was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. She was at the height of her career and didn't think she needed a mammogram until she was in her 40's. 
A few months prior to her diagnosis, she noticed a lump in her right breast. She didn't think much of it until a month later when she noticed the lump was protruding from her breast. She immediately made an appointment to get a mammogram and later received the call that it was breast cancer. 

Stephanie shared her remarkable story of hope, What a Young Woman Fighting Stage 4 Breast Cancer Wants Your To Know: Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fear on the Huffington Post. Here are four inspiring quotes from that article that represent how she relied on faith to get her through this difficult period in her life. 

1. Your body responds to the way you think, feel and act. As difficult as it is to be positive in such trying times, you need to make a concentrated effort to keep your mind healthy. Poor emotional health can weaken the immune system which is the last thing one needs while already having cancer.
2. Find your faith and never let fear prevail over love.
3. My faith is bigger than my fear.
4. Try to see the joy in each day no matter what your circumstances may be, cancer or no cancer, we do not know what tomorrow holds. Each day is a precious gift from God.
