About Me I am a disabled due to overdose of radiation, i was diagnosed with cancer of may2001 and have severe complications from the radiation called radiation nercrosious. Im not able to walk that well anymore and had to give up driving i have been fighting this illness for 12 years i am pretty much stuck in my home but i hope to get a wheelchair that i can lift and i hope to one day be able to afford hand controlls for my car so i dont feel like im stuck in my house. It has been very hard dealing with my health issues and on top of everything my son was killed in August 2010. Im a very strong person and i am never going to give up on life nomatter what is put in my way. I would love to be able to drive again and i want to teach woman about the risks of not getting a yearly check up and to show them the risks that they are taking by not getting there yearly check up. I waited 12 without my yearly checkup and ended up with cervical cancer and alot of other serious health problems but i want to teach women and teens that it is very important to get your yearly papsmear i do not want anyone Elsie's have to go through what i have had to endure.and if th not to ever give up and to always have faith. It is very hard specially being a mom of 3 and having to use medicaid i feel if i have had better insurance i would have gotten better care i wouldnt have to suffer and i would not have the problems i have had to go through if i had better insurance.
