This is my 3rd year modeling for Bras for a Cause. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 1/2 years ago. I had a double mastectomy and 29 lymph nodes removed from my right arm shortly after my diagnosis. This was followed by 5 months of chemotherapy and 7 weeks of radiation. I am currently on hormone therapy and will be for the next 9 years. I have also been going through reconstructive surgery for the past 2 years and will hopefully be finished in the next year. I am very grateful to have Gilda's Club to get me through this difficult time in my life. I attend multiple meetings and activities a couple times each week. I enjoy spending time with my 2 rescue dogs. I am a big environmentalist and involved in animal rescue, especially pitbull rescue.
