It’s Me

Mother, Wife, Sister, Daughter, Friend, with cancer.  I’m so proud to be a cancer survivor, that’s why I write this blog, to hopefully show others you too can find your passion again if you are or ever have to face this disease.  But I am so ready to just be Donna again.

Presenting my best self to the world has always made my insides glow and that pilot light never went out and it seems to have caught a flame again.  My mind likes to remind me daily of what might lie ahead, so going about my day with a bounce in my step and not looking like a cancer patient has given me a reprieve from those thoughts.

I can’t wait to train to be a mentor at City Of Hope, so I can be the face of Multiple Myeloma and give those broken with this cancer hope that they too will enjoy their passions again or find new ones and life will resume to a new normal, one that can be even more exciting then they ever imagined.  Look at me, I’m a blogger now.

So, when we are together or  making introductions, remember it’s me, Donna.

  1. Love YOU Donna!! I read all your blog entries but do not always leave a comment. I love how dedicated you are with blogging and wonderful photos!! We are survivors and must be dedicated in everything now!!


  2. Hi Donna, I stumbled upon your blog when I was diagnosed with MM this January. I’m 38 years old and have 3 children. Your blog makes me happy! I love all your pics and outfits and your cheerful vibe. I see you are here in Southern Cali. I am too. I’m originally from OC now living in SAN Diego. I should be getting ready for my stem cell transplant at City of Hope very soon. Is there anyway I can connect with you for support and what to expect! I realize that’s a lot for a stranger to ask but I haven’t yet reached out to any other support groups. Thank God I have a great family and friends but sometimes I need someone who gets what I’m goin thru! You and your blog provide me with so much hope and joy. I hope you can find time to chat with ne🙏🏼 You can email me at and we can exchange numbers there. I would love to meet you ❤️️ Blesssings – Angela Perez
