On giving back…
“I tell everyone my faith is what got me through this. I had been praying for years for a testimony.
Of course, you learn, when you are talking to God, be careful what you ask for, you may get it.”
“Mine has really been a blessing.
I met some really good people.
I met a lot of people struggling to pay for chemo and pay for medicines. I’d hear all the time about organizations that would assist with that kind of stuff, and it just amazed me that so many people were going through that, and didn’t know where to go, or didn’t have family and friends to walk with them through it.
So, it became my mission. Self-appointed.
Out of that was birthed my non-profit. I go out to underserved communities because that is who needs it the most.
There is a purpose for everything.”
