Goodbye 2021, Hello 2022!

It’s been quite a year! 2021 has been a year of transition and personal and professional growth. I not only survived, I'm thriving in a new environment! Every day is an opportunity to make a difference, touch lives and leave an impression in someone’s heart.

Four years ago on December 28th, 2017, I marked the last chemotherapy treatment. The countdown to remission began February 21st, 2018 when I underwent a double mastectomy. The National Cancer Institute defines remission as a decrease or disappearance of the signs and symptoms of cancer. I’m working towards celebrating February 21st, 2023 as another milestone in this cancer journey.

Meantime, I will remain vigilant and will stay on top of my yearly bloodwork and screenings.

I will continue to love and live each day to the fullest. Part of my daily routine includes morning prayers and exercise. I plan to continue enjoying a nice meal with a glass of wine, traveling and spending more time with those I love.

In 2022, I wish you health, happiness and everything your heart desires.

- Estela
