The 2022 Murph Challenge Day 27: Nadia Bibeau
Let your faith be stronger than your fear.
Today’s dedication writes on 9/23/21, “4 months ago I was given 3 months to live, with a 35% survival rate. We weren’t sure what would happen in those 3 months, my lungs started failing, my abdomen and other organs were being taking over by cancer cells. Everyday I was terrified my body would start failing, I was terrified cancer was going to take my life. That being said I got baptized, handed my life and faith over to Jesus. I prayed and prayed everyday, for a miracle, for Him to save me and heal me.”
Nadia has been battling ovarian and cervical cancer for over two years. She was also diagnosed with endometriosis which causes chronic pain and health challenges. She’s been through chemo, radiation, hormone therapy, and multiple surgeries including having most of her cervix removed. She heard the word remission and “cancer free” not once, not twice, but three times before her 25th birthday.
Nominator, Deb, had this to say about Nadia, “She has overcame all the challenges placed in front of her. She trusted God had a plan. She has become stronger because of it.” Her husband, Isaac, adds, “she is strong and the most amazing person I know, she can overcome absolutely anything.”
Nadia echoes those words with these key takeaways from her battle, “we should never take life for granted, my husband and I eloped because we had so much uncertainty. I never really knew when things would get worse or better so I lived each day like it was my last and don’t take anything for granted.”
She continues with this thought on faith and her journey, “God will never leave you at your darkest moments, every time I felt like giving up or not wanting to do treatment, God helped me through. Cancer honestly changed my life for the better. It’s made me the person who I am today. It’s pushed me to be a better person, be stronger, be more loving. I don’t regret having cancer or going through the fight I went through. Without getting cancer I wouldn’t have the faith or relationship I do with God.”
Every Day We Fight is blessed to dedicate Day 27 of 32 to a strong and resilient faith filled fighter, Nadia Bibeau.
Team Murph: 25:14
When I did the Murph Challenge for the first time I became hooked. Not because it was fun but because it was painful, challenging, and meaningful.
These 31 challenges are a dedication to a fighter, a warrior, a person battling that’s an everyday hero.
