mAss Kickers Interview

I was honored to have been featured  on the mAss Kickers organization's website a few months ago.  The mAss Kickers Foundation (MKF) was founded by brain cancer survivor Eric Galvez  . MKF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which provides support and motivation to all newly-diagnosed patients, family, and friends affected by tumors or cancer. MKF serves this mission through its website, fund-raising, and select events throughout the year.

Raising Awareness on Breast and Cervical Cancer by LUCES and Tamika & Friends

Zumba® Fitness Instructors,  LUCES and T&F
On March 29th, 2014 there was a fundraising Zumbathon® at Our Lady Queen of Martyr Church's Auditorium in upper Manhattan, NY.  The weather did not cooperate because  it was raining, but it did not stopped our mission.

Many people dropped by to have a great time, give support, and be empowered with knowledge.  The three hours just flew - it is true when they say "Times flies when you having fun."

Love, Marriage & Cancer

Not to many of us survivors talk or open up about what goes on with our relationships before during and after a cervical cancer diagnosis. It is important to know that there will be changes in the relationship and it will take patience, understanding and most importantly love to find each other again.
