We can never know where life will take us

“My momma always said life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get”.

Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump

When you get sick and get better, that’s supposed to be the end of the matter. For me, it was the beginning. I found myself suddenly thrust into the spotlight due to this blog, an advocate for cancer awareness and in the process, the founder of my own cancer focused company.

I found myself doing more T.V interviews
I saw my face and my story appear in newspapers
I interacted with women with mental health issues to forge the bond that united us. Because boy, did cancer wreak havoc on my mental health. 

I was overwhelmed. I was scared. This was unfamiliar territory I had been thrust into but I learned something very important that I want to pass on to you.

If life puts you in a position to help people, use it. We are each of us ambassadors of various causes so pick yours and don’t look back.
