What’s your story? Here’s mine.
In the early summer of 2021 my stepmother was re-diagnosed with breast cancer. She had the disease 26 years prior, and while her medical professionals knew this, they missed the signs that the cancer was back. Through a series of horrific misdiagnoses, she was told for over two years that she had fibromyalgia, not cancer. By the time they caught it, she was stage four. While sitting in Massachusetts, trying to support her and my dad in SC, I felt powerless. I wanted to do more. As a non-profit professional, maybe I could re-focus my work on something that might not impact Joyce directly, but certainly would honor her struggle.
Joyce passed away on 9/4/21. I started at Neighbor Brigade on 9/8/21. The decision to join this open-hearted organization has been so important to me and my family.
I’m glad to be here. And I look forward to meeting more of you and hearing your story. Share anytime by dropping me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continual support!
