About Me: 

Today 1st September 2013,i celebrate 2 years of blood cancer diagnosis and exactly one year since my death sentence.in march last year i was told i was looking at six months to die since the cancer had eaten up so much and even with the treatments to manage me i still knew there was no hope for me and when my death month came something told me i had to fight to live and with hope,faith and determination God helped me to fight all the odds and that has kept me alive today.HOPE & FAITH can move mountains.February this year i decided to give hope to all women and kids who have lost hope to Cancer,i opened an organization called Hope & Courage International.We advocate for cancer awareness,policy change and subsidized cancer care.Our major project is the HCI-UNITE which is a women cancer forum with 25 cancer patients all with different types of cancer. we meet every Friday and give hope,share our challenges in life,we lately started and income generating activity to make handbags,porches and mats using plastic bags(nylon papers),Life has become easier and worthwhile knowing that you are not alone
