Laurie Idahosa has shared a personal testimony after she received a worrisome report on undergoing her annual mammogram.
The pastor and mother of three boys who revealed that she lost both her grandmothers to cancer despite them undergoing mastectomies because it wasn’t detected early, took to Instagram to share her experience.
Laurie Idahosa who advised women and men to conduct regular self breast examinations, disclosed that while away in the United States during this past summer, she had her annual mammogram which was always perfect until this year.
She noted that doctors found something worrisome in both breasts and requested that she come for a repeat mammogram and ultrasound.
Mrs Idahosa stated that she went into prayer mode, asking God that whatever was worrisome in the breasts disappear before her next appointment.
She noted that at the next appointment, there was nothing found in her breasts anymore. The technicians reportedly took images ten times the previous one to be sure and all came back with the same result; she was perfectly healthy.
Laurie Idahosa revealed that on hearing the news, she went to her car and cried tears of gratitude to God for healing her, adding that she will never have breast cancer in her life.

PERSONAL TESTIMONY ALERT! ????✝️ October is #breastcancerawarenessmonth … before it comes to a close, I would like to remind all ladies (and gentlemen) to conduct regular self breast exams and when possible get an annual mammogram. I lost both of my grandmothers to breast cancer. Unfortunately, neither of them detected it early enough. By the time they found out they had it, it was already too late, despite the fact that they had mastectomies. When I was in the US this past summer, I had my annual mammogram. My mammograms have always been perfect…until this year. This time, they found something worrisome on both breasts and asked me to come back for a repeat mammogram and an ultrasound of my breasts. Trust me, this is when I went on full-on prayer mode! I prayed earnestly that whatever they found would be gone by the time I had a repeat test. I declared God’s Word over my body and rebuked the spirit of cancer. I prayed as if my life depended on it. When I went in for the repeat mammogram, the technician took about 10 more images than they took the first time. She took focused images on the places where they had seen some abnormalities. When she returned to the room, after having the images reviewed by the doctor, she said, “Mrs. Idahosa, today is your lucky day. I have great news for you, it appears that whatever was there before is not there now. You have a great day! Take a deep breath, there is nothing worrisome. We will see you next year.” I left the office and went to my car and cried tears of gratitude to God. He healed me! I will never have #breastcancer in Jesus Name! Please be proactive with your breast health. #earlydetectionsaveslives #laurietruetalk #cancersucks #cancer #selfbreastexam #testimony #thankyoujesus #cancerfree #pinkribbon Note: behind me is the machine that they used for my 2nd set of images. Mammograms aren’t comfortable, but, breast cancer is worse. You can prevent it, both with the Word and prayer and with being proactive with your health.
