What Living With Advanced Breast Cancer Looks Like…A Healthline Article

I was in Mexico when this Healthline article came out.  I was one of the women featured and I wanted to share it with you.  I especially loved what Mary Gooze had to say.  It mirrored what I said.  💕

Here’s  the link…..

Thank you Healthline for continuing to represent the metastatic community.  I have lost so many friends to this disease.  We need to talk about it.  We need funding for research.  We want to live!💕💕💕

In Memory of Another Stage 4 Sister

Sara el Hassani is now dancing free of pain. She lived with metastatic breast cancer for over six years. Through it all she never stopped dancing.  She was such an inspiration to me.  She will be missed.

Pink To Black….Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day

In an effort to bring awareness and more funding to metastatic breast cancer, my family went to Washington, D.C. to participate in the METUP die in on the capital lawn.  So much money is raised during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  So little of it goes to Metastatic Cancer Research.  1,430 men and women die everyday of Metastatic Breast Cancer.  This has to change. Silence does not bring about change.  It’s time our voices are heard.  If you would like to join METUP or learn more about the group go to http://www.metup.org

I have to share some pictures!
