KIMA THE CANCER SLAYER

I must say I’ve met some DOPE survivors so far during my breast cancer journey. My ‘Pink Sisters’ have in some way, shape or form inspired me to continue to fight and have opened my eyes to this new “breast cancer world”. I was introduced to  Kima on FB where she and I are apart of the exclusive “Living Life After Cancer” group. Her vibrant personality and courage to fearlessly rock her Lymphedema sleeve is truly inspiring. (BC-‘before cancer’, I…

SHAY THE CANCER SLAYER

I stumbled onto Shay’s IG page in the beginning of my chemotherapy treatments. I learned SO much PRACTICAL things about breast cancer and its affects on young women. The first time I saw the phrase ” Young Women CAN get breast cancer” was on her page. During my  MANY nights of insomnia, I perused her IG for answers: Can women and men get breast cancer AFTER a double mastectomy? What types of side effects of chemo do I have to look…

Ericka the CANCER SLAYER

This young women took social media by storm about 2 months ago….. At least 10 of my IG friends tagged me in her infamous pic so that I can witness first hand the amazingness that is Ericka– a topless woman at the AfroPunk Music Festival with scars on either side of her breasts and no nipples. At the time, I just finished chemo treatments but had not yet had my bilateral (double) mastectomy. I googled and researched, then googled and…

Flanice the CANCER SLAYER

The phrase, ” you never know who is watching” is an absolutely true saying! I began documenting my breast cancer journey shortly after my diagnosis. While some people may become a recluse after receiving such devastating news, I was moved to share it with the world in hopes of inspiring ONE young person to be proactive with their health and perform self breast exams (#EARLYDETECTIONISKEY) Dead smack in the middle of my chemotherapy treatments, Flanice reached out to me with…

This past September 9th, the biggest and brightest Hollywood stars united on ‘Stand Up 2 Cancer ‘ (SU2C) a live fundraising telecast to benefit cancer research and help end cancer in our lifetime.The one-hour show will air live on more than 60 networks I was star struck by only one person and her name is Trina.

LaKesha the CANCER SLAYER

I was introduced to the beautiful LaKesha around week 3 into my 16 week chemotherapy drug treatment.  My sorority sister (thank you Spechy Linda @linmfred) tagged me in one of her company’s IG posts. I previously expressed to Linda that I wanted to connect with other breast cancer patients and survivors in hopes of gaining insight from women who are going through or have gone through this same journey. I quickly contacted LaKesha and was inspired by her from the…
