of patient outcomes are due to socioeconomic factors

It's About Time

Rather than asking people to beat the odds, it's time to change the odds!

Brown and black communities need critical attention to address the health inequities and co-morbidities that are taking their lives at alarming rates.

Radiation treatment

Skin care during radiation treatment

When it comes to undergoing radiation for breast cancer the trick is to minimizing skin irritation to the areas of the chest that receive radiation. Too much skin desquamation (peeling) can interrupt or shorten treatment, so it’s important to stay ahead of the game to preserve and protect the

Worth sharing!
Headed to my speech 🎤 at Rice University with both my loves ❤️ at my side.

Gabriel has been asked to speak as well and then introduce me. What an honor. I’m so excited for this opportunity for him. 

The event “Understanding Cancer” is for med school students, researchers and clinicians and will also be part of the university’s coursera. 

Gabriel worked on his speech as a writing assignment for school with his amazing teacher. 

Can’t wait to hear it live !
Coco 🐶 says night night. ❤️

Gabriel’s class picture for Valentine’s Day.  They had a little too much fun!! 
Last year in elementary 🥲

Next year —middle school.
Woke up this morning to this surprise from Gabriel. ❤️

He says “Mommmmm! I have a special surprise for you for breakfast! !!”

Then he delivers these with a smile. 

Homemade chocolate dipped strawberry 🍓 covered with coconut flakes 💕💕💕💕

He melted chocolate in the microwave, chopped up my coconut flakes in the Vitamix and dipped the strawberries 🍓 and rolled them in coconut. 

Love this kid and his heart ❤️ 
He made more but we ate them. Haha.
Saturday was another community service day for Cub Scouts.
Today is World Cancer Day.

In 2022, almost 2 million people were diagnosed with cancer in the United States and a large percentage of those cases impacted the black and latino communities disproportionately.

How can I just “FORGET” that I had cancer and not amplify the patient voice to make the path better for others?

That was the suggestion to me from an oncologist during my appointment this week as I fought Back tears when addressing my fears of recurrence and my cancer related PTSD/depression post AML leukemia and breast cancer.

NO.  We can’t “forget” when we have so much work to do for those too tired to speak and those no longer with us.

NO.  We can’t “forget” when we have care gaps, access issues and health literacy problems. 

So on this World Cancer Day, we honor every single person affected by cancer. 

We honor entire families impacted by the ugly disease. 

Let’s remember —Cancer is NEVER canceled. 

EVERY DAY is World Cancer Day. 

And while we are honoring —  we must pause, recognize, reflect, and honor the global work being done from researchers and oncology teams around the clock and around the world to improve patient outcomes and save lives.  So all of you, my family says THANK YOU!!.
