Location: Apollo, PA, USA

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 41; needing a bi lateral mastectomy. My nurse assigned to me walked me down to a waiting area to wait 2b injected with blue dye to locate my lymph nodes before my surgery-----She left and said she would be back down for me. A black woman in hospital scrubs walked out of a room and closed the door behind herself. She walked right up to me and started rubbing my back and said,"What are you worrying about, it's in God's hands, you'll be okay". Since the beginning of my diagnosis, I hid my thoughts and fears for the most part. After she said this to me----I burst out crying. My assigned nurse came back for me and this same "woman" walked out of another hallway talking to me and got in the elevator with us. She got off on a differnt floor. When she got off, my nurses 1st comment was----"Hmmmm that was strange----I know everyone in that department and dont know where she came from ! I will have to find out who she is; if she is new. " Well, I got goose bumps, went to my room and told my mother and sister(who knows the nurse on a personal basis that was assigned to me) what just happened--- they started crying---like me--- because we all knew that she was an angel.
