After the diagnosis of Cancer my world changed; I now look for opportunities to serve others, read good books, and make time for even the small things in life that matter most.
I always wanted my life to be filled with joy and happiness now I realize they are possible-I now have a voice to make it happen!
I Live Free to be me!
I found out that hot and cold can coexist. I could embrace sadness and hope, disappointment and joy, frustration and potential and heartache all together. I surprised myself and discovered I didn't break I finally figured out that I had an incredible capacity to hold all this life is made of and embrace it. I simply woke up and decided to be happy no matter my circumstances.
This is Me
I believe everyone deserves a second chance. I was abused as a child and I slowly began to die inside a little everyday.
I CAN-CER Vive is my personal journey of surviving sexual, physical, mental and verbal abuse. Only to have cancer, of all things save my life and give me a voice.
As a teenager I thought freedom would come when I moved out of that toxic house and started a life of my own. But it took 37 surgeries, 7 years, losing my breasts, my hair, my beautiful smile to recover my lost self-esteem and discover my individual worth.
Today, I live a life that brings me inspiration, peace, and happiness. Something I never thought I deserved.
If you'd like to know how I overcame my demons and learned how to smile with my eyes and listen with my heart-I hope you will read my book.
This was Then
This was When
This is Now
It is true...
At a certain point it's no longer about what's already happened...it's about what's going to happen. It's about everything that is coming next.
