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…

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…
