How Cancer LifeNet impacts my journey

 As most of you are aware, I have been battling breast cancer since 1999. In 2014 the breast cancer metastasized to my left lung and by 2021 it progressed to my liver and the lymph nodes in my trachea.  It has been extremely challenging, especially the past year.  Cancer LifeNet has been my life line over the past seven years.   I've had many cancer treatments and I will continue cancer treatment for the rest of my life.   Without these vital services and care that I receive from LifeNet, I would not have the strength and courage to cope with cancer and the immense side effects of this devastating disease. 

My history with Cancer LifeNet and testimony to their support

In 2015, I was introduced to KCC LifeNet through their calendar and as a result participated in many of the free classes and programs offered.  In 2020 during the Covid pandemic it seemed my life stopped without activity or socializing.  However, I benefited from the classes, events, and experiences given me through Cancer LiveNet.  I learned to manage and focus on the people and things that are important to me, to my healing, and to my survival.  I used the connection of mind, body and spirit and learned to self-manage with the support and help of Cancer LifeNet and my very important medical team and social workers team.


I am truly appreciative of everything the KCC and Cancer LifeNet is doing for me and others.  Please join me with your support by giving to this great cause as a way to thank Cancer LifeNet for the help and support for myself and many others.
