On August 15, 2014 I was diagnosed with stage II-B breast cancer. On September 6, 2014 Dr. Joshua Glaser (Breast Surgeon) performed a lumpectomy successfully removing a 5cm size tumor from my left breast. After recovering from surgery I started chemo therapy under the care of Dr. Juan Cuevas (Oncologist) on October 1, 2014 and will continue to receive Herceptin treatment through September 2015. I went on to complete 6 weeks of radiation under the care of Dr. Venkata R. Devineni (Radiologist).
I have spent relentless hours over the past 20 years volunteering with youth organizations such as Herbert Hoover Boys & Girls Club, St. Louis Blues Track Club and the Hazelwood School District, while working full time, being a loving wife and raising 4 children of my own.
I am now on the road to a full recovery while taking on a new passion for Breast Cancer Awareness and as a result I started the Passion For Pink Foundation.
