Patricia Ann Penn Pierre was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. She is the sixth child of Samuel & Beatrice Penn. In August, 1987, her life changed, dramatically, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer and was faced with having to have a double mastectomy. She made a decision, early on in the process, to turn it all over to GOD and let HIM lead her through the valley of the shadow of death. She had never been to a place this dark before....so she had no choice but to Walk By Faith because there was no sight! At first glance, the odds may have been stacked against her, but GOD turned everything around in her favor. This is an incredible story of Faith, Hope, Love & Courage. In the face of adversity, her FAITH never wavered. This period in her life is the "defining moment" when GOD and HIS WORD came alive in her life. This is her story...her Message of Hope for you.....that no matter what the situation may be, or appear to be, that GOD is in control and that GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS. You are invited to "step back in time" as she recounts her "journey through the valley," and her ultimate VICTORY over cancer.
She has shared her story with folks all across America and in places as far away as Barbados. Each time she has shared this powerful testimony, folks have surrounded her to share the fact that they were encouraged to "keep their hopes up high and to keep pressing forward........ with great expectations" in their fight against this dreaded disease. In the midst of her storm, her FAITH increased ten-fold and she was able to focus on what she was going TO ( Victory ) instead of what she was going THROUGH (surgeries and chemotherapy). This is truly A Message of Hope.......from a 24 Year Cancer Survivor.
