I am 62 years old and a 5 year breast cancer survivor. I have 45 years of work experience primarily in the business world. For over a year I volunteered and gradually added to my job responsibilities. I count it a blessing and an answer to prayer that I have the responsibility and opportunity to connect with another person facing cancer and walk with them on their journey.

I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia in October 2008. After numerous complications and other health conditions, I am now in remission. I received my RN degree from Mercy School of Nursing in 2010. Since all my unfortunate diseases, I want to give back with fellow cancer patients. I am very proud to be a Patient Advocate with Cancer Connection of Northwest Ohio.
I was diagnosed with cancer on December 13, 2013, and this changed my life. I was referred to Cancer Connection of Northwest Ohio while going through treatment. The support they provided to me was incredible and I felt the desire to help others going through what I went through. I believe in what this organization is doing and am happy to help in any way I can.
I have been in treatment for Stage IV Cervical Cancer since 2011. After all of these years of interacting with support agencies as a patient I came into Cancer Connection of NorthWest Ohio to see if there were any opportunities for me to help out others. I try to add support in the office with technology to make it possible for others to concentrate on helping the patients. I am also a Certified Holistic Nutrition Counselor and try to offer any information I can to others looking to improve their health through diet.
