Since our launch in 2022, the team at OSA CureCancer has worked tirelessly to promote our cause. We are fortunate to have volunteers and staff from all walks of life who bring their unique expertise and resources into everything we do. This is what enables us to achieve our goals year after year.
While there is always more that can be done, there is no doubt that we are making a significant impact. We don’t measure our success through just facts and figures, but through happy faces and heartwarming feedback. See how you can become part of the difference.
My mother, Colleen, is a recent DCIS Survivors (Ductal Carcinoma in Situ), which is the earliest stage of breast cancer. Colleen discovered her lump while raising her arm to give me a hug. After several doctor appointments they told her that the lump is benign. But, my mother felt that something was still wrong and decided to have the lump removed. When the doctors tested the lump they found it was a high grade tumor, she began treatment. When my mother started treatment, her sister was also going through Peritoneal cancer treatment. My mother and Aunt got diagnosed at the same time and were able to take the treatment journey together. Sadly, my Aunt Susan did not make it and passed in 2022.
Since this was my mom's first treatment her concerns were, “What is it going to do to my body? Will I lose my hair? Will I be the same?” We were told she would most likely lose most of her hair. To take some of the worry off her hands, we found a Cold Cap company called Warrior Caps to help preserve her hair, and though it was a lot of work, it worked!
My mother had four rounds of chemo, radiation treatment, several lumpectomy surgeries, and now hormone treatment. Going through treatment is physically tough, mentally exhausting, and emotionally devastating. It is nearly impossible to go through it alone, but luckily my mother was never alone. My mom had love and support from her family and friends through the entire journey. This past year has shown her how short life can be and to never take anything for granted. She wants to advocate and share her story with others, especially if it's their first time in the infusion room, so they know what to expect and how to conquer such a terrible disease.
We created a Non-Profit called OSACureCancer, Inc to share, educate, and help raise funds for the cure for cancer. OSACureCancer is associated with OneSource Amusements, an arcade operator, where our slogan is "Put A Coin Jam in Cancer, and say Game Over!"
