She was recently diagnosed with stage four cancer, uprooted her family from NY and moved to CA to get treatment. She and her husband are passionate about sharing the story God is writing for them with full transparency & (attempted) full surrender. She shares with us what it looks like when your life stops and you begin a new life as a full-time cancer fighter. She is the definition of a Mom Struggling Well and I am so pleased that she came to share her joy with all of us.
