“Praying for a Miracle when it’s Hopeless” is about my physical, mental, and emotional struggle with Stage 4 Breast Cancer
while going through a gut-wrenching divorce, and a fight for custody of my son. In 2004 and 2005, I had many battles with
breast cancer resulting in two mastectomies and two reconstruction surgeries. In 2007, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer
with a metastasis to my brain. Shortly after my surgery, I was sent away in a wheelchair and a diaper by my husband back to my
family in CA; leaving me penniless and hopeless. In 2008, after being sent to CA, I was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus by Stanford
Medical Center. A shunt was surgically inserted into my brain to drain the water to my bladder.
I have no answers as to why my husband tried abandoning me, divorcing me, and leaving me for dead fighting for my life, and for
visitation and custody of my son. I may have lost a few battles along the way.
But, thanks to God, I won the war!! Included in my book are tips that helped me to recover.
I am currently enjoying seeing my son experiencing college life; a site I never thought I’d survive to see.
Praise the power of God!!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
After experiencing and surviving stage 4 breast cancer for 15-years, I wanted victims, survivors, families, & friends to know that getting diagnosed with this ugly disease is not a death sentence. Move through your stages of grief and fear so you can fight! There were tips I used to get better. Which is included in my book. There is so much that cancer cannot do! Re-frame how you view what your going through to potentially extend your life. Positive self-talk is a powerful tool. Negative thought stopping is another. I wanted victims & survivors to understand that they have the power! The power not to chose life or death, but how they will survive this deadly disease.
There are some events that occur in our lives that leave us void of the very breath that we breathe. These events are usually without fail, occurrences that happen unexpectedly, and certainly aren’t a part of the ultimate blueprint we have drawn for our lives.
Nonetheless, these catastrophic moments in time do come, and often leave us much different than how they found us.
They leave us scarred. They leave us picking up the pieces to shattered dreams, hopes, and desires. They leave us changed. Forever.
Just like Marcus Aurelius once said, “When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what’s happening. That’s where your power is!”
Some people choose to allow the storms of life to rage on without any effort being made to calm the sea. And, I get it. You’ll see throughout this book moments where the average person would have given up and thrown in the towel. You’ll probably have some jaw-dropping moments where you’ll
experience the same raw emotions I felt as I lived multiple nightmares back to back. But, amid all the hell I have lived through and survived, I found slivers of hope that compelled me to fight. That pushed me into my war mode and ultimately brought about healing and restoration. While it’s very true that I lost plenty of battles along the way, it is with a great sense of accomplishment that I write this book having won the war.
Tough days are inevitable. Trials are sure to come. But, it’s how you handle the tough days and the trials that sets you apart from the rest. Am I suggesting you glide through them without a tear stained face? Absolutely not. That is not realistic. I am suggesting that you keep your positive outlook to know without a shadow of a doubt that the outcome will be in your favor.
My story that you are about to read is one of strength and survival. As you flip through the pages of my life, and travel on the very tumultuous journey that left me broken, in despair, and minus hope; you’ll take notes and discover how I regained my wholeness, how I regained my sense of purpose, and how I found the audacity to hope again. Dream again. Live again.
Yes, there are wars. But not all of them end in defeat. Some of them end in victory.
And, my war…well, it ended in bittersweet victory.
Here’s my story…
