Woman Finally Goes To See A Doctor About The Lump On Her Foot - Floored By The Diagnosis (Photos)

With our busy schedules and expensive health care systems, it’s understandable how someone could just ignore an ailment thinking it will resolve itself. But Cheryl Murray says that ignoring the lump on her foot is what caused it to have to be amputated.

However, she doesn’t dwell on it.

“I’ve thought a lot about whether if I’d have gone back to the doctors sooner it could have saved my leg,” Murray said. “I never let myself wish I’d have gone to the doctors sooner as I have come to terms with what has happened, I’m now proud to be an amputee.”

According to MailOnline, she first noticed the tiny lump when she was 15. Over the years, the bump grew bigger so she finally decided to get it checked out. By this time it had grown to a be about the size of a golf ball. After the doctors performed some tests, they told her it was sarcoma, a cancer of the connective tissue, according to Mad World News.

Not only did she have cancer, but doctors told her they had to amputate her leg below the knee so cancer didn’t spread to the rest of her body. Murray says it was her boyfriend that helped her hang on to hope.

“I tell him daily that I can’t imagine what I would have done without him,” she told Mad World News. “Knowing I wanted to build a life with him kept me going.”

Murray has a prosthetic leg and a new husband, her boyfriend David. He proposed to her the same year as her amputation to let her know that they’ll be together forever.
