This Was 'How I Survived Breast Cancer' - Ondo 1st Lady, Betty Akeredolu shares touching story

First Lady of Ondo State, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu and
organizer of Breast Cancer Symposium of the Breast Cancer Association of Nigeria, BRECAN has quite recently opened up on how she survived bosom cancer.In this interview with Vanguard, she said 'I survived breast cancer about 20 years ago. It all started in 1997 when I was diagnosed. Before then, I didn’t know anyone who had that experience and the little information I got was from the international media. On that fateful morning when I felt something in my breast, of course, my mind raced to breast cancer because it was where such a disease was located. I was scared and didn’t know what to do; it happened when I was resting at home during my annual leave. It got me thinking that if this happened to be breast cancer, what was I going to do at that age? I was 42 or 43 and I had little children. What would become of those children? I kept the discovery to myself for almost one week'. 

She continued to say, 'my baby was just four years’ old or thereabouts. So, I just tuned to television that morning and what I heard was that ‘this programme could save your life’. Immediately I heard that, I raised my head from the pillow, sat and began to wonder, what could this be? And it happened to be about breast cancer survival journey. That coincidence saved my life. There was this woman and it was her journey through breast cancer diagnosis, and she happened to be the mother of a popular Hollywood actor. She went through the treatment and, as a survivor, was sharing her experience. She used her journey to lift the spirit of those undergoing such experience and I benefitted from it. That was how I summoned the courage to go to hospital, and said that ‘whatever this woman did, I am going to be like her’.

'After the examination, the doctor confirmed there was a lump, but he didn’t know what it was.
When I told my husband, he was scared but he didn’t know I had been fortified by that television programme I had watched. He must have wondered where I got the strength because I was on my feet and prepared that whatever that woman did, I was going to do and overcome. Then my treatment commenced. The first treatment was mastectomy. At the said time (1997), the level of breast health care was at the rudimentary level. Radical mastectomy meant ‘just remove everything (breasts)’ and I said ‘remove the damn thing if that is what will make me live’. My experience was one of shattering loneliness, unavailability of information and group support, coupled with the tight- lip syndrome and indifference surrounding the disease'
 she said.

  1. Hello everyone out there, I'm here to share my unexpected miracle
    that had happened to me through the help of Dr OKHUELEGBE. I was happily
    married with two kids, we lived together as one because we both
    loved each other. All of a sudden, my husband started acting funny
    and started keeping late night. I took out time to know what was actually going on and realized that he was cheating on me. Later on, he told me that he cannot continue with
    me, i even pleaded with him but he never listened. The worst part of it was that he left me and my two kids with noting to hold on to. But there
    was nothing i could do to stop him or bring him back to me. I work so
    hard to pay the kids school fees and other responsibilities for good
    three years. I cry all day and night because I didn't know what to do
    to have my husband back to me until this fateful day I read the post
    from one Mrs Victoria testifying how the great spell caster helped her
    to get her ex back. I just wanted to try my luck because I never
    believe it will work but i said let me give it a try. I contacted the great spell caster and he told me not to worry that my husband will return to me in no distance time after he must have finished casting the spell, that i will get back my
    husband . The unbelievable happened on Sunday when I got a call and I
    was so surprised to hear my husband’s voice apologizing to me that he is so
    sorry for all his Wrong did, telling me he is coming back home to fix all the pains and hardship he brought upon me. wow!!! I really appreciated the great work of DR. OKHUELEGBE. I will always acknowledge your "FABULOUS WORKS" and there is
    noting i could say than to tell the whole world about my miracle. So, if anyone is
    out there reading this post and you have similar issue like this, worry
    no more Dr. OKHUELEGBE is there for you, he can also offer any type of
    help like Reuniting of marriage and relationship, Curing of genital
    herpes and all types of Diseases, Court Cases, Pregnancy Spell,
