Biography

I am a multi-cancer survivor: ovarian, breast and spinal cancer. I am a CFO advisor to start-up companies including the fashion industry. But my passion is my foundation that I started in 2005: Heaven’s Door Cancer Foundation is a wellness spa treatment and advocacy program for women with cancer and advanced life threatening illnesses. Heaven’s Door purpose is Diva Aftercare™: providing free spa visits for women going through cancer all around the U.S. to maintain their inner fortitude and self-esteem. I pay for women to go to spas and resorts all across the U.S. The mission of Heaven's Door is to assist those with advanced terminal illness, to maintain dignity, function and a high quality of life throughout their course of illness. We will help women undergoing cancer treatment cope with the emotionally traumatic and emotional side effects of treatment. The objective is to help patients regain a sense of self confidence and control over their lives.

ovarian - bloating, pain in the back that made me fall to my knees. gravitational pain such as an advanced case of hemmorhoids. Breast - no warning; was going for a reduction and they found an in situ mass in the left breast. Spinal - intense lower back pain shooting down the leg. Times of numbness from waist down; falling to the floor or left leg dragging.

Radiation therapy to the abdominal/pelvic area; diarrhea, abdominal cramping

I am raising money for my foundation Heaven's Door. I pay for spa visits out of pocket for women going through chemo, surgery or radiation. Right now, designers and other businesses are hosting events and providing funds to help me to keep these ladies happy as we have women waiting around the country to go to spa. I am planning on buying a home on the beach in FL for terminally ill cancer patients to vacation in.
