Facing surgery, she awaits treatment guidance from her oncologist. The urgency to remove the lump stems from its growth. Despite the rough journey, she remains optimistic, finding strength in inspirational quotes.
Being a single mother, her biggest fear is not being there for her daughters, especially her 12-year-old. Her determination to fight amplified when she saw her child’s reaction to the news.
