Families Curing Cancer
Saturday, March 24, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
I never thought I would be facing my mortality at such a young age. I have BRCA 1, a genetic form of cancer that is very aggressive. BRCA 1 is a mutation that has apparently been in my DNA makeup since birth, it has caused the deaths of my grandmother, mother, 2 aunts, and a first cousin (this is in my lifetime, I am sure it extends beyond).
I have 4 kids, my youngest just turned a year on 1-26-12, 11 yr. old twins, and a 16 year old. I work as an Occupational Therapy Assistant, and have helped people of all ages and deficits try and regain independence as much as possible. NOW-I am on the other end of it. As a health practitioner, this is very difficult.
Since my diagnosis, I have been unable to work and the bills are mounting. I've had to scrape up change, and when I couldn't do that -we just went without. It has only been a MONTH since the diagnosis, and things are becoming increasingly more challenging. I don't have quality time with my family, everything is CONSUMED with trying to battle cancer. We are in battle mode all the time.
I thank my friend Gina, for having the foresight and thoughtfulness to know by having this benefit it will help my family get through the tough times, and to focus on HEALING. I am a very independent and prideful person, but I can recognize when I need help; and I just can't go do it all this time.
Thanks to all in advance and God Bless!
