Doctors Said She Wouldn't Make It; 18 Years Later She's Doing It All
How does she do it? Kristin is living her life to the fullest and it's keeping her alive. She has stage 4 cancer, the worst kind. Doctors told her she didn't have long to live. But 18 years later, Kristin Johnson St. Goddard is going strong and counting her blessings.
“Stage 4 cancer for 18 years. Seventeen different treatments. Mastectomy. No hair. Tubes in my lungs. If you told somebody, ‘go into the room and pick someone out (with cancer),’ they wouldn’t know it was me. I’m the healthiest sick person you’ll know. I should be dead,” she said. “But I’m not. So what I’m doing must be working.”
She lives her life to the fullest. She makes the most out of each day. “People say you should take a nap or something. Nope,” said Kristin. “I don’t want to miss one minute of life. I don’t want one minute to pass me by.”
I repeat -- she has stage four cancer. The worst kind.
“My son, when he was writing something for a scholarship or something like that, wrote that my mom has stage five cancer. I said, ‘Nathan, there isn’t a stage five’”
Her doctors can't even explain it. But whatever she is doing is working!
