--------------------------------------- Excerpts From her Bio: One day you could be dancing with your kids , enjoying life, exploring different areas of life and then WHAM! It was on my birthday. There I was singing and dancing with my kids, getting ready to have a great time and I found "the lump". The thought that honestly crossed my mind was that I knew what it was... When I finally got in to see my doctor and all the referrals that I needed to go and see a general surgeon to get my biopsy, I had a lot of time to think. I thought both positive and negative outcomes. I not only found out that it was cancer, I found out that I happen to have a very special monster and it called itself BRCA 1, and I was positive for that as well. Not only finding out I have cancer, but to add to it this thing is the mother load because it was triple-negative breast cancer which is really aggressive.... ......the beginning of this glorious journey of mine. I know you may be thinking, what was positive about all of this that she is talking about? Out of this diagnosis I have since become a plus size runway model for Lane Bryant (2017). I have done work with New Day Associates and their Annual Breast cancer Gala (2017). I have had a center spread in @Pink Mag.com Magazine, I have traveled to speak at engagements for women who have undergone metastatic Breast cancer. I AM a stage 4 metastatic breast cancer survivor who has gotten a new lease on life. Learn when you listen to the show...
