2017 Joyful Ornament Recipient

Janet Mitchell


My name is Janet Mitchell and I am married to the most wonderful caregiver ever!  We have one son who is in his 30's and lives in New York.  This is my fourth bout with breast cancer.  I usually have surgery as my main treatment since the cancer has been localized and small.  This time they are treating it with a hormone blocker and praying that it will shrink the cancer tumor and prevent the growth of more tumors rather than surgery, which they do not want to do with my breathing issues.  I am confident that I am a child of God who is the Great Physician and it is He to whom I give thanks for life.  My life is in His Hands and I am not worried about the outcome of any of my health concerns.  I worry more for my husband who has to endure all my side effects!
