I am a breast cancer warrior.
I defeated breast cancer 7 years ago. I still remember hearing those awful words when I was first diagnosed, and remember how weak it made this strong woman. A passion of mine since then has been to help guide newly diagnosed women through those initial, difficult steps. I then found My Hope Bag, and their mission of empowering and comforting those with breast cancer spoke to me. I first became a volunteer, and now am more actively involved in helping this wonderful organization grow.
I am an RN and have truly loved my career, it is most definitely my calling. I currently work with patients who have been diagnosed with cancer of many types. I live a very healthy life, am an avid hiker and have recently become a Pilates fanatic. My other passion is travel, and I am always looking for the next new place to explore.
