In June 2015 after becoming very ill, I went to the doctor a check up. I found out I was six weeks pregnant and was told that an abnormal cyst was found in my breast. I was sent to have an emergency biopsy the  very next day. I had a gut feeling that something was not right, the breast surgeon even told me, "I know the results are not good but we will know for sure in three days." When I went in for my follow up appointment on the following Tuesday, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. In layman's terms the cancer had spread to 2 or more lymph nodes and is fueled by hormones. Keep in mind, that I am pregnant and my hormones are raging.
In that moment I had to make some tough decisions. The doctors immediately advised that I abort my first and more than likely only child so that my treatment plan would not be impeded. I made a selfless decision and decided to keep my child but search for other doctors. After weeks of being turned down by different hospitals and doctors because no one wanted to work on a pregnant cancer patient with MediCaid. I felt defeated and almost gave up but continued to work everyday and pray.

       One day a client whom I hadn't see in months came in to get a haircut and noticed my energy was very low. I kept a smile on my face and told her I was great. She replied by saying, "I'm a doctor and I know something is wrong. If you confide in me, I might be able to help you." I literally broke down and between sobs told her my story. She lovingly told me to give her a few days so she could try to call in some favors to her fellow doctor friends. Weeks past and my nervousness increased, my other doctors had me scheduled for lumpectomy because they refused to give a pregnant woman chemotherapy.
      After what seemed like years, my guardian angel called with a list of doctors who had agreed to take my case. Let's not forget that I was previously turned away from this same hospital. Grateful is an understatemen when it comes to expressing my gratitude. During my second opinion with my new doctors, I found out it was more than just have a cyst. In fact, my entire breast was filled with cancer cells and I would need chemotherapy to shrink the cells. Had I gone through with lumpectomy, the cancer would have spread aggressively and I would be preparing for the end. I was in a state of shock and amazement for quite some time, I was now at the same facility getting ready to schedule my appointments for chemotherapy at the same facility that denied me because of insurance. That day I knew life is all about the connections you make and the people whom are in your corner. I just finished my first round of treatments and I am on Number 3 of my second round of 12.
       Thankfully, my baby is healthy and I am so happy I made the selfless decision to keep my child. I now know that I won't be able to have anymore kids. They will induce me and take my baby in the middle of December. Just 2 weeks post delivery,  I will have a double mastectomy. The treatment plan is to continue with a year plus of chemotherapy and radiation. My cancer has been linked to genetics, passed to me by my father whom had type of cancer but coincidentally died from it. Radiation with chemotherapy is the only way to kill the cancer cells with the hope that it won't come back. Due to my current medical condition I can no longer work. The new chemo has major side effects, I do not feel it is wise to put myself and clients at risk. I was denied disability and once I deliver my child I will lose my current insurance. I now have to figure out payment for treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, breast surgeon visits, and surgery. I know this journey will be very hard especially with a baby on the way but I'm so ready to conquer this journey and tell my story to inspire others.

I became super depressed with serious anxiety in which I couldn't stop crying it felt as if I was going to have a nervous break down. So I got on google that day to locate fertility clinics that work with cancer patients of whom have already went thru treatments for cancer and I found ACRM. They specialize in situations like mine so I called on 8/7/17 and they got me in for an emergency appointment on 8/8/2017 we did a lot of testing and blood work I was told that for my situation I was still in good shape to try but we wouldn't be certain until the labs came back On 8/9/217 when I received that phone call that I was a candidate for fertility treatment to preserve whats left of my eggs and give me a second chance and a possible sibling for my daughter Wynner in the further. I was elated but once the financial advisor called later that day I was broken again bc this journey has been so pricey at this time i cant afford the cost of the treatments. So I became depressed again and decided to reach out to organizations to see If i cant get financial help for this process even though its far fetched in this time crunch I decided i must try.

Beat breast cancer in 2015.. On May 3,2017 I’ve i found out my cancer came back on my brain cancer its only like a 20% chance that it comes back there with the type of breast cancer I had.Its crazy how during every step of my journey I’ve fallen in the 20 percentile of all things cancer... Its rare that woman battle breast cancer while pregnant no one really does chemo while pregnant even though my daughter Wynner is healthy with no problems!!!!! I kicked Breast Cancers butt and I plan on kicking Brain Cancer butt bc Im determined and bc my doctor said I have to give him another 20 years bc he's ready to watch Wynner graduate high school & college!! HE has planned his gifts already Wynner is not only my success and my everything but my doctors were advocates for her birth bc they knew more kids wasn't in my future but I’m okay with that bc Wynner’s aren't BORN everyday... While we are planning graduation gifts and teaching Wynner to have confidence while walking my doctors are also Pushing Rian to pursue a career as a doctor bc she take good care of me and always has even when i battle before.. When they speak using Medical terminology they never have to break it down to Rian and they said they know she is meant to be a doctor and they are willing to guide her to get to her destiny... Its crazy how when you get a good medical team they become family and I love my medical team.. I have never questioned my journey I have never asked why and I never will... there is nothing i could have did deferently my cancer is genetic on both sides i just have to alkaline my childs body and hopefully i want have to do this with my child... I’m a true believer in the power of the Universe we are all put her to do a job mine is being the Ambassador for the weak and the one of whom didn't know they were weak. I will always stay strong and stay positive during my journey my destiney was already written and he knew i was strong enough for this journey..
