Fought Breast Cancer for 10 years
In an interview with Susan Binau a few days before she passed peacefully:
"I share my story because I want other mothers to know how important it is to live every day to the fullest. To try not to worry about tomorrow. It took me a long time to learn because cancer is scary and I thought I was going to die. Today, 10 years later, I'm still here, and I'm not fearful of dying, I know where I am going. My children will be ok, and I am blessed with 10 years more than I had expected."
In loving memory, of Eunice Escobedo

I believe in sharing stories and if my spirit can lift others' then I'm grateful." - Carol
Currently in remission for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
Kati Dukes, mother of two, was 36-year-old when diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma in November of 2018. It was a very sudden diagnosis, and one month's turnover from not having a sinus infection to being diagnosed with cancer.
"There are no guidelines when you have cancer. I had so many questions when I left the doctor's office. More than anything, I could have used support from other patients, who knew what I was going through. It was impossible to find, and that was the hardest part. "
