My Five Year Cancerversary - A Big Milestone

Me and My Wonderful Doctor
It's my fifth year CANCERVERSARY!!!!  I have been counting the days to reach  this big milestone.

Five years in this time and age is not a long time, but as a cancer survivor it means a lot.  It means that the odds of this ugly monster coming back diminishes.

Make no mistake, there will ALWAYS be that  thought in back of my mind, but I'm able to control it a little better now. I'm not looking over my shoulder as much.  Life does go on after cancer.

Health Screening Event - A Success

On Saturday, April 26, 2014 the organizations LUCES and Tamika and Friends partnered with the New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center to offer breast, cervical and colon cancer screenings.

It was a cloudy and raining morning but the mission had to go forward, and forward it did.  We are pleased to report that over 20 women had their pap tests and over 50 women had their mammograms.  Yay!!!

We couldn't have ask for better numbers or maybe we can.  We hope that next time more women take advantage of this great opportunity as a preventive measure to prevent breast, cervical and colon cancer.
