My name is Lourdes and people call me “Lulu”.    I am a single mother fighting breast cancer and I want to share my story.    I want to be able to encourage women about the importance of early detection and if diagnosed, not to give up hope.    You can fight this terrible disease and win.

My family has been supportive and I am strong for them.   When I see them I feel proud, but I also feel their stress.   I tell them that don’t fear that this is only a setback.  I also tell them that we must be strong and go forward.

In a few weeks, I will be telling you about my journey and the steps I am taking to fight this disease.    I will provide resources and articles to help you fight this.
