Trusting in Something Greater than Myself to Save Future Generations

In the past 40 days, I've had to say goodbye to four amazing souls unexpectedly; Brian, my father, Whitney, and Tyler. I am reminded that God's plan is not our plan.

Have you ever had a weird, unexplainable urge to do something that makes no sense, but you have this strong desire to do it? 

I was called to use my family's unimaginable pain as we fought one cancer battle after another to build a community of cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers. 

After hearing the words, "you're in remission," something in me said I'll never truly be the same. I had to have faith in the unknown, and it was confusing.

Continually praying for peace, I wanted nothing more than to heal and pretend cancer never happened to my family. It was such a traumatic and life-altering experience, and I could have lost myself through it but instead used it as fuel to ignite change. 

In 2014, I prayed for direction, and God told me to trust in something greater than myself, which led to crowdsourcing diseases where I grew up on Florida's space coast. 

I got involved with investigating a cancer cluster in Satellite Beach, a formerly used defense site in South Patrick Shores, and walked in faith, trusting that is where I was meant to be. Through that experience, I was gifted with memorable encounters and closer to finding the peace I prayed for in 2014. Every person I encountered in that endeavor shaped me into who I am today.

We must not be afraid of what the world is thinking, what we look like, or making the right decision.

Through the loss of these incredible people in the past few weeks, I'm reminded that we need to make the most of our time with each other, focus on being present, and harbor as many connections as possible. And if you find that God is calling you, trust Him. His plan will change your entire life.
