BENEFITING: 3 LITTLE BIRDS 4 LIFE
Last year was one of the best and worst years of my life. I had a new addition to my family; I was one semester away from graduating with my MPH; and I was accepted into my dream internship. I was certain that 2012 was going to be "MY" year to overcome the struggles that I had been through while raising my younger brother after our parents passed away from cancer. However, being diagnosed with breast cancer immediately brought thousands of dollars of medical debt, sickness, loss of my independence, and my relationship of 3 years crumbled to pieces. I was a single mother of a newborn who was fighting for her life. Fortunately I had many great friends who supported me throughout treatment, and I was able to complete my internship. The past year has been very challenging physically, emotionally, and financially but I am ready to start living again. It is my Wish to fly to Paris for a family reunion vacation with my sisters. I have not seen them in a few years, and I would love to reconnect with them.
