Friends and family,
When I was 17 years old I walked in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk in Dallas, TX - at the time I had not been personally affected but I thought it was an amazing cause and it would be a great experience before I went off to college. Some of you helped me so kindly reach my fundraising goal and I still am so appreciative that you helped me through that journey! That was the hardest and the most rewarding experiences I have ever gone through and had the chance to meet so many incredible people through that 60 mile journey.
This past November I found out that my mom was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer. You never think that you will be affected by something that could change your life so quickly and put everything into perspective. She has been so incredibly strong and courageous during the whole process it is truly incredible. She had a successful surgery on November 6th at UT Southwestern to remove her Type 1 tumor. We patiently waited to hear back the results of her surgery we were so fortunate to find out on November 23rd that her margins and nodes were clear. We have counted our blessings every day since we found out that she was cancer free and today, Thursday, February 2nd, she is finally done with her treatment!!!
Thank you so much to our friends and family who have supported my mom and family during this time, we are so incredibly blessed to be surrounded by so many amazing and loving people.
Immediately after I found out the news I knew that I was meant to walk in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk in San Diego in honor of my amazing strong mother. Every dollar is so incredibly appreciated and I cannot thank you enough for your love and support for this cause.
Please follow #TeamNelly during the Susan G. Komen Diego 3-Day Walk on November 19th-23rd in San Diego and let's fight the end against breast cancer!
