In 2014, diagnosed with invasive breast cancer at age 46, I made the choice to stay positive, full of Hope, and rely on my faith. throughout my treatment. This was especially difficult when , during Chemo, I got an extreme case of C. Diff. Infection, that put me in ICU ,with doctors not sure if I would survive.
I came out of the battle with a deepened understanding of the importance of JOY, HOPE and FAITH. I believed that small positive actions could add up to make a huge impact in the world and set forth to create a charity that would fulfill this mission.
