My Story

Veronica Better known as Christy is the oldest of my children she came into this world on a cold December morning after 24hours of labor! The day she was born the mother in me was born as well, she has brought me so much joy,experience and also difficult moments.The day she was diagnosed was a dark moment in my life but shortly after receiving the news the Lord put peace whithin me and courage to be strong for this girl i so much loved!!! The season we lived through her diagnosis and treatment was not a smooth one at all but it was a season of growth and faith. I am so proud of her achievements and her strides she has accomplished throughout all of this i am greatly thankful to God for her healing for his love and comfort Veronica is a bright girl with so much future ahead of her and i would like to ask anyone willing to donate even if its 1 dollar to the foundation to be able to research and help other families in there fight against this disease so that one day it won't be a possibility that this disease can claim the lives of our piece of the future!
