This fundraiser is all about my mom!! My goal is to raise $1000 for this fundraiser!
In September of 2008, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. This was a scary blow for me and my husband and our entire family. At the time, all three of my children were in the military and were either in Iraq, about to go to Iraq or just coming home from Iraq. Our daughter, Lindsey, was the one stationed in Iraq when we found out, which was heart breaking. I had to wait weeks to be able to talk to her and when I did, I finally had to tell her my prognosis. It felt awful to share this news with her while she was in such a difficult place, so far away from home.
In October of 2008 I underwent a lumpectomy and spent the next six weeks enduring radiation treatment. As of this date, I am “symptom free” of cancer, which is a blessing. I’m proud to be a small part of the Girls Gone Rx program, helping to raise money for cancer awareness
