BigWig Fun Fact: I finally went sky diving for the first time for my sons birthday. I’ve always wanted to go but never have the guts to do it.
Why are you participating?
I am participating because I know several people, both men and women, who have been effected by this horrible disease. Recently, it hit closer to home when my niece was diagnosed, she is in her early 30s - and watched helplessly as she battled through along with her husband and two daughters and all I could do was pray and be supportive spiritually, and tell her I love you. Now another friend has been diagnosed and a friend’s mom too. We must fight to stop this and this is my way of trying. Let’s fight together!
What is my greatest achievement?
Raising three God fearing children on my own! Thank you Jesus!
What brightens your day?
Seeing my grandson smile and light up when he sees his Tu Tu (grandmother)
What is your favorite vacation spot and why?
Hawaii is my spot! It’s beauty, the people, the food and serenity. I am not a very good swimmer, but I overcame my fear and got in the ocean to swim with dolphins. It was amazing, even if I was the only adult with a noodle!
