For the last 9 years I have been a part of a local charity as a committee member, co chair, and chair. This week I made the huge decision to step down from the committee. To give a little background on why this is huge, I am a two time cervical cancer survivor. My little sister is a cancer survivor, one of my best friends is a two time cancer survivor, and I have numerous Aunts and Uncles who are also survivors. I joined to fight for a cure for cancer, it is a large part of my life. With the birth of my daughter just 3 1/2 months ago, who is a miracle because of the damage that was done, it has become an desire to cure cervical cancer. I DO NOT want my daughter to go through what her Aunt and I had to.
With the addition of watching my nephews I realized that I had no time to commit to this cause I have held so dear. I have been pulling myself to thin over the past few months and realized that I finally needed to take care of myself.
