Can you share a little about your experience with cancer?
I never thought two days before my birthday on 1/13/2020 I would be diagnosed with breast cancer. Normally a 50th birthday is a milestone to celebrate, but instead my 50th birthday was trying to understand why and how I got breast cancer. I always ate healthy and walked one or two miles a day and no one else in my family had breast cancer. Breast cancer never crossed my mind.
Can you share about your experience with POQC/MOQC?
Cancer is an overall horrible thing that everyone wishes to fight, destroy, and win the battle. I believe POQC will make an impact helping communities focus on the challenges Cancer Patients/ survivors face and will contribute to helping to better the quality of life for Cancer patients. In my opinion, POQC is a true advocate for the Cancer community.
What other people, places, experiences, or things bring you joy?
I do not take one breath for granted. I wake up grateful every single day. I am grateful for my cat, my family and all of the people I have met along my cancer journey. I always find joy. Going through cancer really taught me how to count the small joys. The small joys are the big ones.
