The journey hasn’t been easy and became even harder in January 2011, when she was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer. After undergoing emergency surgery and chemotherapy, her faith in God’s plan for her life never wavered. Unfortunately with 2 years in remission, the cancer returned in 2013. Although she is currently battling colon cancer, her passion to fulfill the dream still burns bright with scheduled fashion shows and speaking engagements.
