1978 – It’s a GIRL! God designed a very unique Brandy Sue to take on the world! And as some say, “Save the world one smile at a time.” Although I cannot save the world, I can try to give the world that smile the Lord has given me.
1980’s – My mom, my hero, was diagnosed with a malignant brain cancer that was spread through her brain like a cobweb. She was given only 6 months to live. She opted for quality vs. quantity and did not receive chemo nor radiation. God BLESSED us with her for TEN years! She should have been bed ridden or dead after 6 months, but she lived a full life until the day she went to dance with Jesus!
June 1996 – My mom went to be with the Lord
2002 – I met my husband and his daughter (which is now my blessing too). We married and began this journey of life together. Our daughter is also a survivor.
2003 – I survived Ovarian Cancer, Stage 1A. Praise the Lord for the circumstances around it that it was caught so early that I never needed chemo nor radiation. I did have a total hysterectomy and they removed my ovaries also. Which makes our daughter a double blessing since I could not have (biological) children.
2010 – I had the opportunity to have the job of a lifetime!
