---------------------------------------

MixxedFit came into my life before breast cancer did, but at a time when I really needed it. I was significantly overweight and could barely climb at set of stairs without running out of breath. I was depressed about my weight and was at a pretty low point in my life. I knew I liked dancing and I found a local MixxedFit class by doing an internet search. As soon as I went to a class, I was hooked! It didn't matter that I wasn't happy with the way that I looked or that I did not have much dance experience, when I went to MixxedFit, I was smiling! In February, 2014, I attended a MixxedFit workshop, and it changed my life. I met friends who are now my sisters and brothers who have done life with me over the past several years and who have been my support system. I had MixxedFit to look forward to just about every day, and in the meantime I lost weight, became stronger, and my dancing improved, as well! 
 
On May 31, 2015, I found a lump on my breast. It turned out to be breast cancer, and had invaded my lymphatic system by the time I found it. I began a very aggressive treatment program to try to get rid of the cancer before it became incurable. I had the strongest chemotherapy regimen possible, along with a double mastectomy and extensive radiation treatments. Throughout my treatment, I continued going to MixxedFit classes. I was bald, thin and weak, and sometimes my movements were pretty minimal, but the dancing and the love and support from my #MFTribe gave me something to look forward to and gave me the strength to keep going. 
 
In October, 2015, I was excited to attend Poppin' In Pink, a MixxedFit fundraiser for breast cancer. Little did I know that this was actually a surprise party for ME!!!! My family was there and Lori, Marquita, and my whole MixxedFit family had created an unbelievably touching video for me. On top of that, the proceeds from the fundraiser were donated to me to help me with my fight and I was given a huge gift basket with thoughtful and comforting gifts to make my treatments easier to bear. This was a moment where I truly did not feel #worthy of all of the love and support that I was receiving from MixxedFit. At the same time, I know that each of my MIxxedFit sisters and brothers are worthy of my love and support and I am more than happy to share the good times and be there for them in sad times. That is what family is about, and my #MFTribe is truly family. MixxedFit Corporate also sent me a wonderful care package. MixxedFit made me feel worthy.
 
In March, 2017, I learned that my breast cancer had returned and metastasized. It is now in my lungs, lymph nodes and in my brain. At this point, it is incurable and I likely have about a year or two to live. My MixxedFit family is still by my side, supporting me and checking up on me. I am still feeling pretty good and dance with my tribe every chance I get. I can truly say that one of the best things that has happened in my life is MixxedFit and finding my #MFTribe. I do not know where I would be with out the dancing, laughter, and tears that we have shared. Any bad moment can be better by playing a video of my beautiful MixxedFit family dancing together. Thank you for finding me worthy of your love and support.
