Since 2005, our all-volunteer nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization has been dedicated to helping men and women affected by cancer. We are Survivor's Helpers.
I’ve always been passionate about going to college, getting married and starting a family. I married my soulmate a year after college and during the following year we began the journey to parenthood. We had no idea of the struggles we were about to endure or the devastating effects of what the future would hold. After years of fertility treatments and a miscarriage we were blessed with the birth of our son.
My journey continues… At 28 I was diagnosed with Stage 1B Cervical Cancer. The news was shocking. It left us devastated. We were on an emotional roller coaster. There were no support groups in my area for young adults facing cancer and infertility.
In 2005, I decided to help other cancer survivors on their journey to parenthood after cancer. I’m passionate about creating an organization that can be the stepping stone for many others who need help dealing with their diagnosis; providing them a chance at emotional wellness. I’m dedicated to being a patient advocate and survivor sister. Stepping Stone Support helps men and women affected by cancer and infertility. With the help of our community and national partners we are able to raises awareness, fund research, and support gynecologic cancer patients in treatment and survivors.
Please consider joining me on this journey in honor and in memory of those affected by cancer and infertility. The road may be long, but it doesn’t have to be traveled alone.
