A while ago I started attending a local women’s business networking group held at the West Shore Country Club on the 5th Wednesday of the month. Through this group I’ve met two amazing women- Tania and Abeer. They are sister’s and it seemed that they do so much volunteer work I couldn’t imagine how they had time for anything else! When I found out Tania was running for Woman of the Year through The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, I knew I wanted to help in any way I could. It is my personal belief that if God blesses you with a gift, you should use that gift to help other people. Through Tania I was able to connect with the boy and girl of the year (from the LLS). They are both AMAZING children, and I have been so blessed in being able to spend a little bit of time with them. I just did Ashley’s photo session and asked her mom, Elaine if she would like to share her story.
As a mom, it is your worst nightmare to imagine something happening to your child. I simply can not imagine the pain of seeing a child go through cancer. It is my hope that sharing Ashley’s story will bring comfort to other parent’s going through a similar situation.
