Meet Sonia Davis
I’m Sonia Davis. I’m 48, married to an incredible guy and have 2 beautiful children. In May of 2018 I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) after having a clear 3D mammogram just 2 months prior. My Mom had died of ovarian cancer and because of this, I did a blood test (CA125) and pelvic ultrasound yearly. My blood test came back elevated and with my Mom’s history, it was determined that a full hysterectomy would hopefully prevent me from getting ovarian cancer. As it turned out, the pathology report stated that breast cancer cells were found in both ovaries, not ovarian. A PET/CT revealed that it had gone to both breasts, my pelvis, spine, ribs and adrenal glands. Talk about a shocker!!! I had stage IV cancer and felt fine.
A dear friend encouraged me to reach out to Believe Big! Ivelisse and her staff have been so supportive and informative. I really don’t think I would be alive today had it not been for their advice! I was awarded a grant that allowed me to go to Boulder, CO and meet with an integrative oncologist, Dr. Kirsten West. I received IV mistletoe, as well as subcutaneous mistletoe, and IV Vitamin C. The supplements and diet changes have allowed me to be a Mom and feel good despite 2.5 years of battling this disease. People can’t even believe I have cancer!! I have a very restrictive diet (no gluten, no refined sugar, no dairy, organic vegetables, organic chicken, organic eggs, grass-fed red meat very rarely), but I feel better than I’ve felt in years! I continue to do subcutaneous mistletoe and IV Vitamin C.
If you have been diagnosed, recently or otherwise, I would encourage you to reach out to Believe Big. They will give you the tools you need to thrive in the face of cancer. When I first heard of Believe Big, I thought it was a unique name and I really didn’t “appreciate it” until I spoke with Ivelisse. Your mind is very powerful. God created our bodies and minds to heal themselves. Believe that God CAN overcome any obstacle…even stage IV cancer…in the face of fear and death. I have read the “I will have no fear” insert countless times over the years that was given to me the first day that I reached out to Believe Big. Fear is the biggest weapon that is used against us. Negative thoughts and fear can sabotage your health. God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind. We need to “Believe Big” to overcome!
Everyone knows someone with cancer. I encourage you to get involved with Believe Big today! Your support will help so many thrive in the face of cancer!
