BENEFITING: 3 LITTLE BIRDS 4 LIFE
On January 28, 2012, I was diagnosed with ALL at Emory Winship Cancer Institute. There with my "then husband" after receiving the diagnosis from Dr. Winton, we both started crying and asking God "why?" "why did this had to happen to me?" Diagnosed on a Friday, I was scheduled to be admitted into the hospital to begin the initial treatment on the following Monday for up to 3-4 weeks. January 28th is when my whole life changed for the good/bad. I was working, going to school, and being "supermom"; but after that diagnosis, I had to instantly stop everything I was doing and focus more on my health. I was released from the hospital after 21 days. Afterwards, I would go every two weeks for three days up to one week for treatment. That was hard on my family; especially my three kids.
