Why are you so passionate about helping young girls and women thrive?
I am so passionate about helping young girls and women thrive because when I first got diagnosed and the doctor told me that my breast cancer had spread throughout my body. It was in my bloodstream and that I had stage four breast cancer, I thought it was the end. I thought my life was over, I couldn’t believe this was happening to me and I didn’t know why it was happening to me. I wasn’t married, I didn’t have any children and I thought my life was over. The doctor said, “Well do you believe in miracles?”, something deep inside of my spirit connected with my inner warrior and it was like a jolt of faith that went into my system and I said, “Hell yeah, I believe in miracles”. At that moment I said to myself: “Yes I believe in miracles and I believe in myself. I have never been through such a huge battle but I can do this. I have overcome a lot of different things”.
That’s just what I did, I’m ten years no evidence of disease-cancer free. I made a promise to God and the universe that day that I will never let any doctor or man write my story. Cancer was my diagnosis not my prognosis, I went into the hallway and got on my knees between me and GOD. So I said “I will promise help young girls and women realize that they can overcome any adversity they are going through. That they could be strong, brave and have confidence to go through whatever CANCER that is holding them back. Because CANCER is more than the disease, it’s cancerous people and things in our life”. I made a pact with GOD that I would be the connector in helping women and young girls overcome any obstacles that come their way. I began mentoring and coaching women at homeless shelters because just like I needed someone to support me through my difficult times I wanted to do the same for other women, it was called the Oprah Coffee Club. These women thought I was saving them in reality they were saving me. I made a pact with God to help women and I’m keeping my word until the day I die.
