Pretty Girl Blues
My life has proven to be a journey of unexpected challenges. I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer (Rhabdomysarcoma) at 3 years old. I was cancer-free a year after my diagnosis, but left with permanent ostomy (colostomy and urostomy), for the rest of my life. Through my journey, faith in God, support from family & friends I am bless to have my desires, passions, and dreams come true. I have been a fashion model for over 17 years, yes with my ostomy bags. To see the outer appearance no one could ever tell I live with these adversities.
Today at 49 years old I am helping other cancer survivors, ostomy patients, youth mentoring groups, women’s health organizations, and those suffering with low self-esteem. I do not look like what I deal with 24 hours/7 days a week. I am not suppose to!
