Hey Sis? Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime? (For my male followers, Men can be diagnosed too). (Source: nationalbreastcancer.org)
With that being said, we need to make sure that we are paying attention to our bodies and reveal to our doctors any changes that we may notice. Early detection is key and we can do this by performing monthly breast self examinations. There area many resources that show you how to perform self exams. Let’s do our best to make sure we are taking care of our selves. We have work we want to do and work that needs to be done and our health is a major factor in reaching our goals and our being around to enjoy life with our family and friends.
As always I like to add a personal touch because I want you to know you are not alone.
My story: My grandmother died from breast cancer when I was 8 years old. I vaguely remember her passing but I do know how empty I felt and still feel to this day because of her absence. One of my mom’s close friends was diagnosed with breast cancer, to see her come out as a survivor is inspiring. I have many friends who have lost mothers, aunts, sisters and other family members to the disease or have had to pay particular attention to their health because of test results.
I say all of that to say, you are not alone in the journey sis. We are here for you. If you need to make the appointment. Put the reminder on your calendar to perform your monthly exam. Find an accountability partner or become an advocate for the cause.
Your Health is important Sis. Someone needs to hear your story. 💋

Who is She?
I am a Wife, Mom, Daughter, Full Time Employee, Friend and Change Agent that has been succeeding, failing and winging it for years. Although I am not perfect, I do know that God has been guiding my path along the way in each journey. No matter how good or bad my experiences may be or have been, I know they serve a purpose. What is that purpose? To show you that you are not taking this journey called life alone.
Over the years I have met phenomenal women with stories that you would not believe unless you heard them yourself. I created the SheSpeakz platform as a way to “Speak Life” into ourselves and those around us. SheSpeakz is a way to tell our stories and encourage women to embrace their journeys. At times it may be uncomfortable but there is someone who needs to hear your truth. I love meeting other people, listening to others about their life experiences, making connections and helping others make connections. When women collaborate with and support other women, amazing things happen.
Some of my passions are leadership/personal development, empowering women to be themselves, mentoring, public speaking, baking, traveling, writing my blog and spending time with my family and friends.
I currently reside in the San Antonio, Texas area with my spouse and our two active children.
My call to action for you as a reader is to embrace who you are and know that you are enough. We all can use a little improvement in some areas of our lives but don’t let that stop you from loving yourself and being the best you. I also ask that you take the time to encourage and support one another. In this delicate time, we can all use positivity in our lives. I also ask that you are intentional about making a positive impact in the lives of those around you and in your local communities. Use your talents that you have been given to change the world one good deed at a time.
You can communicate with me on the following platforms:
