View Profile



I am a widow, mom and an instructional aid for special needs children.
I am a Christian and believe God has a plan for me and my family. What that is I am not sure yet. My husband also had cancer. He was diagnosed with Colon rectal cancer 4 years ago and together we fought to support one another. He passed away this July after a very courageous battle. He is my earthly hero.It is by Gods grace we did as well as we did and I continue to do.
