I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer at age 27 then again at 37. At this time this disease didn’t run in my family nor did I know anyone with it at that time. It was a simple home exam that I found a lump. Biopsy showed I was already in Stage 2. I couldn’t understand why me, but God reminded me why not me. I turned the negative into a positive. It was the curse that saved my life. It showed me what was really important in life. God Family Success… in that order. Through chemo, radiation, and lumpectomies I was able to fight and win. Since my journey I decided to use my story and encourage women to be proactive instead of reactive. Too Fabulous for Cancer Charity Organization was created. Through Charity events we gift women makeovers, stipends, photoshoots to help take their minds off having cancer.. making them feel amazing.
