Thank you for visiting my blog.

As my favorite author Matthew Kelly says, life is made of choices. 
Everyday we have to make decisions: go to work or stay home? black pants or brown skirt? highway or main street? 

Every action we take leads us to a different path. The key is to learn how to make the right choices, the kind of choices that will help us become a better version of ourselves. The ones that will help us to get closer to ours dreams. The ones that will make a difference in someone's life. 

It's never too early to start making the right choices and it's never too late to change your path. 

My story is not much different from many other ordinary stories out there. 
Throughout my life, I have made many choices. Some of them led me to where I wanted to be, led me to make some of my dreams come true. Others, not so much. 

At the age of 35, breast cancer decided to remind me a lesson: We are not invincible and we are not irreplaceable.

Sometimes in life we really need to slow down and think about what matters the most: our family, friends and perhaps the ones that need us but don't need to know who we are: volunteer work. 

Thank you for taking the time to read my story. 
I hope you become a better version of yourself on each decision you make. 


This is the treatment the doctors recommended:

Doxorubicin (Adriamycin) + Cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) = 4 sessions, 1 every 21 days.

Taxol= once a week for 12 weeks.

3 weeks break.

6-7 weeks of radiation, once a day, 5 days a week.
