Review for Overcomers Daughters of the King of Kings, La Vernia, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

God placed angels in my path Throughout my Breast cancer journey. Several of these angels would begin telling me about this wonderful organization - Overcomers. Feeling broken and lost and discouraged, I started researching the group, hoping that God was leading me to where I needed to be. Finally I had enough courage to sign up for the fall workshop. On the first night of the workshop, I was blessed with a sense of sisterhood and support. The workshop helped me process the effects of what a breast cancer diagnosis can do to someone’s life. Finally, I was surrounded by women who knew exactly how I felt, Surrounded by Women who have experienced what I had been through, And immediately surrounded by love and support and encouragement. This group has taught me that I am not alone as I walk this journey. The fall retreat was also amazing. It further helped me heal from the brokenness that I was feeling after chemo and radiation. It rekindled the fire that I needed to start the next phase of my journey - diep flap reconstruction. I left the workshops and the retreat with a deeper relationship with God and a renewed faith in God’s plan for me. Because I have been so blessed by this beautiful organization, I have joined the leadership team to serve other women who have been affected by breast cancer. God is blessing me in so many ways through servant leadership and I am forever grateful to Overcomers for the huge impact it has had on my life and the lives of so many other women. Praise be to God!
