    MY JOURNEY 2014-2018

    Although I have been doing this event for 10 years my family has been doing community service for 110 years ....I BECAME A PART OF ACS MAKING STRIDES WHEN I WAS DIAGNONSED WITH BREAST CANCER IN 2014.

    I AM 5TH GENERATION AND 3RD TO SURVIVE BREAST CANCER; IT’S A FAMILY GENE. I HAVE BEEN HIGH RISK COLON CANCER SINCE I WAS 27 YRS OLD. SUFFERING SINCE THE AGE OF 17, I WAS TAUGHT TO TAKE CARE OF MY SELF EARLY COLONOSCOPYS AND MAMOGRAMS HAVE BEEN A PART OF MY LIFE SINCE MY 27TH BIRTHDAY.  WITH ALL THE PREVENTION MATTERS I TOOK I STILL GOT A BREAST DIAGNONES. ONE DAY I FELL ILL MY G.I. DR SENT ME FOR AN MRI W CONTRASE AN I WAS GIVEN SO MUCH THAT IT LITED UP MY CHEST CAVITY WHERE MY TUMOR WAS FOUND. GOD BLESS MY G.I. DR!

    THE REASON THE LAST THREE GENERATIONS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SURVIVOR IS DUE TO THE ADVANCE RESEARCH WHICH HAS HELP WITH ADVANCED SCREENING PROCESS IN ALL TYPES OF CANCER.  ACS HAS BEEN ABLE TO DO WITH HELP FROM ALL THOSE WHO FUND RAISE AN SUPPORT.

    IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR ME TO JOIN THIS FIGHT BECAUSE I HAVE LOST 85% OF MY FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS TO THIS MONSTER.

     MY DIAGNONSES LEFT ME LIKE SOMEONE KICKED ME IN THE GUT AN RAN OFF WITH MY LIFE. I KNEW MY LIFE WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME.  DURING MY FIGHT MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING CANCER CENTER PUT ME IN CONTACT WITH MY ACS CANCER COACH IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WASN’T ALONE. IT’S A FEELING I HOPE TO RETURN ONE DAY!  AFTER 3 CONVERSATIONS I KNEW THAT THIS WAS MY NEW VIOCE. I NEEDED TO BE A PART OF THIS FIGHT WITH THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY. I FEEL LIKE I’M A PART OF AN INTERNATIONAL FAMILY THAT CARES ABOUT ALL. WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGHETHER. THAT MY TEAM LOGO”TOGETHER WE WALK FOR EVERYONE”

     I FORMED MY TEAM DURING MY FIGHT BECAUSE I WANTED AND NEEDED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. WE NEED TO COLLECT AS MANY TOYS FOR OUR CHILDREN TO ENJOY THEIR HOLIDAY AS WE CONTINUE RESEARCH SO WE CAN FIND THE CURE ONCE AN FOR ALL... PLEASE REMEMBER WITH YOUR SUPPORT WE CAN WIN THIS FIGHT. DESPITE ALL MY CHALLENGES MY MOTHER;S WORK AND THE ABILITY TO CONTIUE OUR FAMILY LEGACY DRIVES ME TO CONNECT WITH OPPORTUNITIES LIKE YOURS TO SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY AND THE CHILDREN THAT LIVE WITHIN IT.  HELP IS ALL WE NEED!.  WITH YOURS OUR MISSION WILL BE COMPLETED!   

    NOW THAT YOU KNOW A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME THERE IS ONE MORE THING i WOULD LIKE YOU TO KNOW... THIS TASK IS IMPORTANT TO ALL OF US BECAUSE IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD AND  GREAT COMMUNITIES MAKES FOR A BEAUTIFUL WORLD!!!

    REMEMBER TO MAKE YOUR ANNUAL CANCER CHECK UP, THIS AFFECTS WOMEN AND MEN:  TO ALL STAY BLESSED!
