Friends and Family!
I am humbled daily by the love and support you have extended to my family! When our days could not have been darker or filled with more fear, you were there for me and for my children. Cancer is NEVER something you put in your family plan...yet there we were facing it all Christmas of 2014. You boldly walked with us, you lead us when we could not lead, you nurtured us when we needed it and you simply empowered us to find a way through this journey of cancer.
Our family has found a will to survive and to thrive! We are proud of our accomplishments and work together to pay it forward, to make a difference in the lives of Cancer patients and their families.
I found a need to turn my cancer journey into a purposeful piece of my life. Maybe it is self preservation, but when I turned my disease into a platform to make a difference in the life of other patients, I no longer had a need to be angry or to ask the "why me" question!
When your passion becomes defined by your life experience......you can sit by and let it happen, or you can take that leap of faith to make a difference! I don't have to tell you that I chose that leap of faith!!!
I left my career in the financial industry, took that leap of faith, and literally begged to be hired by the Kettering Health Cancer Center. I had a calling to expand on what had become my volunteer commitment. I had developed a "cancer coaching program" and through word of mouth began working with patients; at first locally, then expanding outside of Dayton and then outside of Ohio. I help Patients to figure out the HOW. I go into patients homes and help them set up to come home from breast surgery, I listen, I encourage and I pray.
Fast forward to May of 2017, and I made my way into an employment opportunity at the Cancer Center. That beginning opportunity lead to so many positive experiences. Everyday was the fresh opportunity to impact a patient and their loved ones. Truth be told, I believe I always was the one who learned most from these encounters.
Today I hold a new position at the Kettering Breast Evaluation Center. I work with six of our locations and am part of a team of 54 who make this career their calling. EVERY SINGLE DAY we impact the life of a woman through annual screening, diagnostic procedures, biopsies and even follow up to treatment. Not all our patients are diagnosed with Cancer, but every single appointment has that potential.
It takes a very unique commitment to be in that moment with patients every day. Our staff is dedicated, compassionate and committed.
The WALK is the single largest fundraiser for our department. At KBEC ( Kettering Breast Evaluation Center) we are committed to ensuring that every woman has access to screening and care. We provide financial assistance, provide wigs, lymphedema garments and most recently purchased a new 3D Mammogram machine for our Cancer Center location!
Join me by making a donation today! Join me in making a difference! It's about ensuring that every women can be the mom, the wife, the sister, the daughter, the neighbor and the best friend she desires to be!!
DONATE AND WALK...or JUST DONATE!!! I'd love to have your support and work together to make this a record year for KBEC FUNDRAISING.
For me, it's that moment when my passion and my career have come together to allow me to make a difference ....allow me to make sense out of my own personal journey. Its a beautiful life when your calling and your career allow you to give openly, boldly and impact the lives of those around you.... YOUR GIFT TODAY WILL PROVIDE CARE TOMORROW!! Care to the very women you know!!!
Thank you in advance for your support and generosity!!!
