Mission: To reach, inspire and encourage women as they fight their battle with breast cancer as well as provide them with much needed resources that can help them with their journey.

The “endless field of pink flowers” header was selected to help depict my continuous, bold journey as a two-time breast cancer survivor. As there are several paths thru the flowers leading to unknown places and spaces, I move forward daring to live boldly. I invite other women to join me, “Courageous Diva” in the fight against breast cancer.

NOTE:  In September 2018, I started a group entitled, “Courageous Diva’s Circle of Inspiration and Hope”.   The purpose of the group is to share testimonies that will  encourage, inspire and give hope to cancer survivors.  The group meetings and workshops provide empowering information and fun activities related to health. The group meetings are held at John Booth Senior Center located at 2601 E Baltimore St in Patterson Park (Baltimore, MD). Each monthly meeting is held on the third Wednesday of the month at 1:30 PM. Everyone and all ages are welcomed!  Please spread the word!   If you have any questions,  click here to send an e-mail or click here to register .

The key to battling this war with grace and dignity.
