2017 Participant/Breast Cancer Survivor
June Ocean City, MD
My name is Misty and I am 37 diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer metastasized to my bones. I have three children Andrew 14, Paige 9, and George 7. My husband is Aaron and he has been the best through all my treatments and surgeries! I applied for a Little Pink retreat after my stage IV diagnosis. I found the application through a Facebook page I am on. I never imagined I would be chosen or that it would be one of the best experiences of my life! To be blessed to have the opportunity to meet so many other amazing women going through the same thing is so important in remaining positive. It restored my mind and helps me to be mentally prepared to keep fighting and enduring the appointments and treatments. It was wonderful to not have to worry about those things for a week and also not to have the stresses of money because everything is provided for you! The activities were so fun and empowering! The food was great and things ran so smoothly! The volunstars are awesome and are there to make the trip amazing in any way they can! I will never forget this and have made some great friends! My kids also have made some amazing friends too! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
