Tell us about your cancer experience
I am a three-time cancer survivor, twice uterine and then ovarian cancer. I've been free of uterine cancer for 6 years, and this July, I will be 4 years free of ovarian cancer.
November 2022 will be 9 years since I received my first diagnosis of uterine cancer. Today I am happy and living a peaceful and wonderful quality of life. I would like people to know that it is possible to have a fulfilling life after cancer.
Tell us about your work as an Ambassador
As an Ambassador, I help to educate underserved communities on breast, ovarian and uterine cancer by way of distributing informational materials and presentations where I share my own experience with cancer. We share this information with people at health fairs, churches, schools, and community centers just to name a few places. During the pandemic, we are doing our outreach virtually.
Why is being an Ambassador important to you?
I am very passionate about the work I do as an Ambassador because I get the opportunity to go into a community of people who look at me and offer important information that may be helpful to them, a loved one, or someone else that they may know.
