Welcome to My Personal Page
I am a part of this wonderful fundraiser to honor my twin sister, best friend and others close to my heart. Also, including all the individuals that have been diagnosed with breast cancer that are still here with us today and to those that are not.
This is a part of my sisters story please read below...
"I was 24years old when I heard the words "YOU HAVE BREAST CANCER!" You will need surgery, Chemotherapy, and would probably never be able to conceive another child. I had really no idea what that meant for me, my future and with my 4 year old little boy.
I had no time to feel afraid everything happened so quickly within 1 week I had my first surgery starting with a lumpectomy. The surgery was 3 days before my son's pre-school graduation. There I was with my bandages and three drainage tubes (would not have missed that for anything in the world).
I got the news a couple days after the lumpectomy that I would now need a mastectomy because the cancer had spread a bit more and would need to get my whole breast removed, well by the second week there I was again having another surgery for the mastectomy.
I started Chemotherapy about a month or so after, I did not know what to expect other then what I saw in the movies. I did not expect that by the second treatment my veins would be shot out and remember being poked 27 times to try to find a vein (no luck). I now needed a port placed to get my chemo. Had my other surgery for my port placement.
I spent my 25th birthday on a chair getting chemotherapy and on Christmas Day getting my last Chemo.
I just celebrated my 16 years ‘CANCER FREE’ anniversary this past Christmas Day.
I am now 41 years old, have 2 lovely children my son Paul is now about to turn 22 years old and my daughter Suriana will be turning 13 years old…
I am still going ‘STRONG’ ~ LIFE IS GREAT and look forward to more Cancer free days…"
I am extremely thankful and blessed to live "LIFE" knowing my twin sister & Best Friend are cancer free and still here with us today.
Please help me and my team raise money for those that have, are and for those that will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
Lets help find a CURE!
