As a healthcare provider caring for patients and their families is what I do. However, it never occured to me that one day I might need serious healthcare myself one day. In 2014, that very thing happened. I was diagnosed with an agressive prostate cancer. The following surgery, radiation and hormone therapy treatment that I sucsequently endured was an intense experience but thankfully rid me of the cancer. And while I am grateful for the benefit of my cancer treatments I have found my true "healing" is occurring post cancer treatment.
What has nourished me and healed my soul the most has been the blessing of getting back to what I love the most...caring for others. This passion and now life's calling has opened new doors for me and is allowing me to expand my efforts into volunteering and being an health ambassador and men's health advocate all over the world.
A wonderful opportunity has been presented to join other people impacted by cancer for a two-week volunteer program in India with A Fresh Chapter. Whether spending time with disabled men and women at Mother Teresa's, working with kids at an underfunded daycare in one of Delhi's slums, or helping underserved youth through a career impowerment program, I will build new connections, gain perspective, and step beyond my story of cancer to help create a ripple of good in the world.
Through this program I will have the opportunity to volunteer my time and energy to people on the other side of the world as well as serve as a Cancer Ambassador in communitees where cancer is often veiled in shame, secrecy, and stigma. In the process, I hope to turn the page of my own Fresh Chapter and heal myself as I work to heal the world. Please consider donating to this extraordinary journey. Any amount helps. I look forward to bringing you with me on this journey of discovery and will volunteer in your honor while I'm in India.
