Why am I hosting this event?

Five years ago, at the young age of 35, I had heard those dreaded words, for the second time – “you have cancer.” I will never forget the fear, anxiety, and uncertainty that took over my mind as I prayed so hard that God would spare my life so I can watch my daughter (10years old) and son (8 years old) grow. Nor will I forget my daughter asking me if I was going to die – unclear how to even answer a question like that at such a young age.

Today – I am blessed and grateful to have no evidence of disease. As I celebrate my life, and this very special milestone, I reflect on the memories I have been able to create, experiences I have gotten to enjoy, and the life I have been blessed to live.

This October, I decided I wanted to do something monumental. Throw the biggest celebration with all of the people who mean so much to me. I also wanted to rally other survivors like me to educate our community about breast cancer and the risks associated with recurrence. I have chosen to partner with Breastcancer.org – a national organization that supports 19 MILLION women like me all over the world nationally and globally – giving them education, resources and support throughout the entire path a women has to take when she hears those dreaded words “you have cancer.” An online platform that gives support at 1,2,3 in the morning when you can not sleep and want to connect with other women or seek answers to your questions. A place that I still utilize today, and feel grateful to have had throughout my cancer experience.

It is my sincere heartfelt request to ask you to join me in celebrating this tremendous milestone. I want to celebrate with other survivors like me, who also have the passion to “give back” and educate, inspire, and empower others with our own stories of survival. And we are so honored to have chosen an organization such as Breastcancer.org to give back to – because no patient, caregiver, friend, or family has to deal with this journey alone – and Breastcancer.org ensures that with the level of support the provide.

I am confident this event will ignite a movement in our community where we rally other amazing, inspiring survivors like me to give back in the most profound way – celebrating the life we have with a community that supported us every step we took.

CHEERS TO 5 YEARS – and the past decade of my 30’s fighting this horrific beast!

Let’s TAKE THE FRIGHT OUT OF BREAST CANCER!
