A routine mammogram detected a lump in Maxine Macon’s right breast. She adopted a matter-of-fact attitude about her diagnosis, which she said surprised her doctors.
“I can’t really explain it,” she said. “My faith is what brought me through it. I’ve still got my faith, my strong belief in the Lord. I know he brought me to it; he will bring me through it.”
Macon said once she learned she had cancer, her only question was “when can we do it?” in regard to her treatment.
“I said, ‘I’ve got to go through it; tell me what I need to do,’ ” she said.
