Survivor’s testimony filled with faith, hope
Anyone who’s been around Carmelita Barney for any time at all knows that she’s a woman of great faith.
That faith was put to the test nearly five years ago when she went in to see her doctor for a routine office visit.
“My doctor sent me to have a mammogram,” explained Barney, 71, who aside from spending 16 years in Chicago, has lived in Tunica her entire life. “That’s when I found out I had (cancer).”
Like most suspected breast cancer cases, Barney was ordered to undergo a biopsy following her mammogram. What happened next was anything but routine.
According to Barney, instead of having the mass in her breast biopsied, surgeons performed a partial mastectomy, removing nearly half of her left breast.
