In June 2014, I received a phone call that took my life down a path I never imagined — I had breast cancer. The days ahead were filled with doctors appointments, test, and difficult decisions.
I lost control of my own life.
I was battling a serious disease, undergoing exhausting treatments, and sufering side effects while also enduring the emotional strain of the scars left behind. I was fortunate with the support of my family and friends, but not all women are as fortunate. Some are fighting their battle alone. I have established the non-profit organization, Pink Hands, and commtted myself to supporting women during their Breast Cancer journer.
