I have always thought of myself as a doer. In work, I definitely was and continue to be. As a mom, I’m mostly a doer. I take my kids everywhere. I expose my two boys to adventures. I include them in my work. I try to teach them by doing. However, my treatment for breast cancer made me realize I have not been a doer the way I want to be now — but that is about to change.
That fear would be flying. But after surviving chemotherapy, I wasn’t going to be held back from taking family on the trip of a lifetime.
I recently had the pleasure of taking my youngest daughter to Brooklyn to celebrate The National Park Foundation and National Park Service, In partnership with Brooklyn Bridge Park and One World Trade Center for the celebration, for the first time ever, New Yorkers worked together on a giant digital circuit board to control the color of the lights of One World Trade Center’s spire. The celebration featured music by Ramblin’ Dan, which kept my little one grooving all afternoon.
We are filled with gratitude today! Never could we ever imagine that we would be on the cover of NY Family magazine and we are so very grateful to everyone who has supported us.
