About My Memoir: 

I want people to know that facing a terminal illness doesn’t dictate how you live your life.

Advice for Others with Metastatic Breast Cancer:

Why I’m a Hear My Voice Volunteer: 

It has taught me to stand up and use my voice. Whatever I have to offer, big or small, there is some way that I can contribute to the fight to bring awareness for a cure for metastatic breast cancer.
