At the tender age of 28, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and was devastated. I had no idea what was going to happen or who to turn to for help.
I had so many questions! What about surgery, recovery, treatment, medical costs, and insurance?
It was a long hard process trying to figure out these answers to all of my questions.
I saw these same questions and concerns in the eyes and voices of other cancer patients, as they were trying to navigate their journey towards recovery.
But I survived and even moved on to enjoy another joyous milestone in my life’s journey,..another child and subsequently grandchildren. Life was good!
Then once again, “The Beast” came back to haunt me…30 years later.
I have personally lived through the various emotions that my fellow survivors go through daily — twice!
I have seen the look and spirit of being overwhelmed, fearful, and just plain tired of this BEAST named CANCER.
So this is why I created this foundation, to educate and encourage survivors to actively participate in their healing.
They will need to make well-informed decisions for what is best for their physical, mental, and spiritual treatment.
My Basket of Hope is here to give you the support you need, when and where you need it!
