“Before the treatment, I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t talk. That’s why my husband has to stop working. I’m already on one year of treatment. I have to go on. I have to let my kids see that I am okay, even if I’m not. But I have, too. They keep me alive. They would tell me that, “We’re here because of you. We’re fighting because of you.” They’re my life. So even if physically I am nothing, but I still have my kids with me.

So that’s why I’m also encouraging the women out there that you have your family, you have your friends with you. Speak with them. Be in their life again. To stand up, that there’s still life ahead. That’s why I’m coming out to speak. I’m helping other women out there to stand and go on.”
