My name is Nikitia Morris (Ferguson) and I've been chosen to carry the torch of breast cancer. Over a two-month period, doctors told me that I was fine and what I was feeling was mental, but I didn't give up on me. As we know God has no respect of person and honestly, I consider myself to be the best candidate for the job in my family. I'd lie if I said I wasn't afraid at times, but being afraid is only my flesh responding. When I learned of the information I was initially taken aback, but soon after I began to thank God for choosing me. I am honored to be a testament for not only myself, but for others knowing that I am already healed and enduring for someone else, hence the name of my campaign #TheBestCandidateTM.
Since being diagnosed, many people have voiced that I should be devastated and/or depressed, giving that I was only thirty-four years old with a ten-year old daughter at the time; however, I am the total opposite. I possess an inner strength, which allows me to consider this to be a blessing and a testament of my faith, which I exert, every day. So many people believe that cancer looks and acts a certain way, but I am a living witness that you make the decision of what your cancer looks like. In order to spread the word and share the way my cancer looks, I will regularly post inspirational messages, not only to inspire myself, but also in hopes to inspire those who read. When people see me out and about it bewilders them that I am currently undergoing medical treatment. Yes, there have been some physical changes to my appearance, but the one thing that has not changed is the smile that I will forever carry on my face. I have been assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved!!!!
Those who know me know that this is only the beginning of a lifelong journey to INSPIRE, OFFER HOPE and CLAIM LIFE out of what some believe is the end.
To God be the Glory
