There have been a lot of ups and downs, but thankfully most of my experiences have been a blessing and I am… Continue reading 5 years and counting…
Right now there is a huge conflict within the Cancer community regarding this vaccine. A lot of people don't feel comfortable getting the Covid-19 Vaccine because they are just not sure how of their bodies will react.

October is a tough month for me! Just like it is for every other woman that has been affected by Breast Cancer. But for me it's about trying to find a balance. You see, this is my Birthday month.

There were women I was following on social media that I was… Continue reading Finding Your Tribe!
I started writing this post on Tuesday, December 11, 2018. I finally remembered to post it... LOL Happy New Year!! ------------------------ I was so excited about this Christmas season.
