Why I Relay

Why I Relay

For the past 18+ years, I have fundraised to support the American Cancer Society because cancer has affected so many people that I know and love.  

On July 18, 2019 - The words, “you have breast cancer” pierced my mind, body and soul like a bullet.  It took some time to pull myself together, and time was not on my side.  Through genetic testing, I learned I did not carry the BRCA gene.  I breathed a sigh of relief but that peace did not last long.  I had triple negative breast cancer - an aggressive cancer that grows quickly, is more likely to have spread at the time it’s found and more likely to come back after treatment than any other types of breast cancer.  I spent the next few weeks in what seemed like back to back appointments with cancer care coordinators, breast surgeons, oncologists - chemotherapy & radiation, plastic surgeons, and I was scheduled for so many variations of tests that had I not written everything down, I would not be able to recall it all.   It was a race against time..and as fast as we moved, the cancer continued to grow.   

On August 30, I was scheduled for a double mastectomy with temporary reconstruction.  This was such a personal decision for my husband and I but one that was ultimately right for me. The cancer was growing and after surgery I had moved to stage 2b, nuclear grade 3.  Due to some complications, I eventually had the port surgery on September 26, and after some additional complications I started chemotherapy on October 11.  

Today, February 28, 2020 - I completed my final round of chemotherapy (4 Adriamycin & Cyclophosphamide; AKA- the red devil, 12 weekly Taxol).   

The journey is not complete and I will soon undergo radiation therapy and several additional surgeries.  All along the way, I have had some incredible prayer warriors lifting me in their daily prayers.  I placed all of my hopes, my future and my faith in Jesus Christ!  And, I am beyond thankful for my doctors, nurses, admin teams, cancer wellness leaders & coordinators, cancer programs, community, church, friends, family & my amazing colleagues at Delta Air Lines.  “It takes a village” and I am so thankful for mine”. 

Today, I ask that you stand with me and help me raise funds to support cancer patient programs and groundbreaking research that can help save lives. The American Cancer Society, Relay for Life events also celebrate over 15.5 million cancer survivors nationwide. That’s why I’d love your support. 

Please consider making a donation.  

Thank you in advance for your support and may God bless you!

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
