I SWING for my MOM


My mom is my why S- She is my

Passionate, strong, W-warrior

    Who continues to I- inspires me to live life to the fullest

                       And let N-nothing get in my way of

                              The G-Greatness she continues to see in me.



This is such out of my character to be asking for help, but with my asking I hope this story, I am about to share with you, will inspire you to have reason behind your swing or simply learn the power behind the swing!


A year ago, my mother went into brain surgery to remove a tumor.  Leading up this event was her neck and back pain.  After two different MRIs, it was confirmed she had a herniated disk at C6- C7. For those who may be wondering what do those letters mean if you were to bend your head down toward your chest it is the main vertebra you feel at the base of her neck. 


To the doctors and my parents surprise there a tumor trying to make itself a home in my mother’s brain.  This was a blessing in disguised!  The surgery was an easy success! Yes it was a huge success, but that was the easy part.  Recovery has been a different story.  My mom was not only recovery from a major surgery but she was and is still trying to heal her neck.  She decided one surgery was enough and she was going to heal her neck with the holistic approach.  Because of where the herniated disk is located it has caused her shoulder and hand tremendous pain.  She continues to fight this through chiropractor, massage therapy, acupuncture, and pulse therapy. 


The cost of the surgery and the fact she has maxed out her insurance coverage, I am asking for your donation to help my mother fight this battle of regaining her health without another surgery.


On November 20th I will do a kettlebell swing for every dollar donated.  I do this not just for my mom but I do this for you out of appreciation for your generosity and to encourage you to share your story and help you with your journey one swing at a time.
