Everyone has days in their lives that are seared in their memory, moments you will never forget. For Pandora Patt, two such moments changed her life. When she was12 years old, her brother-in-law, a minister gave her an important message. “He gave me a word of knowledge, a word from God,” she remembered. He told her, “God is going to use you throughout your life, to minister to people, to help them heal.” Pandora knew something had changed.
On June 5, 2014 Pandora received a different kind of knowledge. Her doctor informed her that she had a mass in her stomach. “He called me at 7:30 in the morning and said, ‘You have to see the oncologist today.’ As soon as he said oncologist, I knew.” It was Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and Pandora was faced with one of the biggest challenges of her life.
Today, Pandora walks into a room full of light and beauty. Her short, natural hair growing back, rather stylishly and accentuating the shape of her face, her lovely skin tone and her bright eyes. She is a woman of presence.
