June 22, 2012 Zion Baptist Church, Deaconess Ministry invited Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. along with other members of our church to participate in a play called , Soliloquy, her Story. It was an Honor to have been part of this event. I am a member of Zion’s. My daughter Marlenna was there to support me. I was so happy to see her out in the Congregation I had to tell everyone to give her a hand clap for being there for me. I brought a basket of necklaces to share with everyone to give them an idea of what the Beat it Beads look like. While telling my story I looked at one of the members and on her face she looked like she was in shock to hear I had Breast Cancer. After I saw her face, I froze for a moment then I realized how God truly been a Blessing to me thank you Lord then I was able to finish my Story. After it was over a women came over to me in tears and said someone in her Family just found out they have Cancer. My Heart went out to her I gave her a Hug and handed her a Beat it Beads Necklace to give to her Family member to give them a message don’t be down get up and fight!
June 9, 2012, The Wired Women World Wide invited me to share my story to a Coffee Break Christian for Women at the William Jeans Memorial Library. I was so excited and somewhat a little scare because I never was one who wanted to talk in front of a crowd. But God gave me the strength he was in control everyone enjoyed my story they all stood up clapping their hands with a smile on there face. What I remembered most is a young girl came over to me shared with me she found a Lump on her Breast been afraid to go the Doctors but after she heard my Story she changed her mind she said she is going to make appointment first thing Monday. Thank you Lord! This is my message to give to other women if you find a Lump react Fast!
On March 18, 2012 I celebrated my Birthday by having a Sunday Brunch Birthday Social. I invited Friends and told them to bring unwanted Necklaces instead of Gifts. The Beat it Beads collected our very first total of 35 Necklaces. I shared with everyone I was planning to give them to women who have to hear the same words I did you have Breast Cancer and this is going to be called the” Beat it beads” Against Breast Cancer. My friends were the first to join the circle of women to give a message to women who just found out they have Breast Cancer. We had so much fun socializing enjoying the Delicious Food Buffet. Later that week my friends came by over and over again dropping off Beaded Necklaces they had found and received from their Family and friends.
