Story

In the Heart of Life
Introduction
I’m a Breast Cancer Descendant [BRCA]. Living also with Chronic Lyme Disease • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. My Breast Cancer began growing shortly after toxic exposure on 9/11. I married a wonderful man two years after my diagnosis on Patron St. of Breast Cancer Day. We met in the heart of NYC [History Channel's "Breaking Vegas"]. We moved to LA two years later, where my husband works as an Actor and Freelancer in TV/Film Production. Soon, I became very ill and was diagnosed with late-stage Lyme disease and life-threatening breast cancer, age 39. I sought help after a Divine Dream, warning me: A big lady appeared before me, revealing Breast Cancer. My Background: Born and raised in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. My father was a steelworker, over 30 years, prior an Honor Guard in the US Army. My mother raised us three girls. I spent alt. summers with my Oma and relatives overseas. I moved close to 30x (throughout PA, NY, Carolinas, FLA, AZ, and CA). I have traveled from age 4 to visit relatives, also, for modeling work and leisure [Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, (former) Yugoslavia, England, Canada, China, Japan, Vietnam, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and throughout US]. Today, I rarely travel anywhere outside LA. I've been drawn to fine art, acting, film, poetry, music, dreams as far back as I remember. I have spent time studying, modeling, acting, creating, writing poetry, working lots of interesting jobs, meeting amazing people, experiencing a lot. I have been very fortunate to visit many places, yet still dream of places to go. I am an old soul, deep thinker, storyteller, student/teacher of life, true friend to those I cherish, good listener, wife, mama bear, Godmother, daughter, soul sister, aunt, niece, and cousin. A special thanks to the doctors, nurses, and medical staff at Pink Lotus Breast Center, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, St. John's Health Center, Tower Hematology Oncology, California Pacific Medical Center, friends and family for their love and care. I rejoined SAG-AFTRA after my single vision returned (in an eye trial) from a three year struggle of seeing double. I am very fortunate and not a day goes by that I don't realize that.

My husband and I loved working with Michael Moses. Our experience with Galpin dealership from the moment we moved to LA from NYC has been more than great. We purchased our Ford Fusion at Galpin in 2007 and just traded it in. Our salesman who we were referred to, Michael Moses, was very friendly and very knowledgeable. We were trapped in a bad situation. What made matters worse was the additonal financial burdens from my breast cancer and Lyme disease battle. Michael Moses worked the impossible, financing a new car to us. Brought peace into our lives. He is a GREAT guy to work with; helped us purchase a new VW Jetta. I must also credit the two other employees, Paul Ulbrich and Michael Gould, who helped in making our deal happen. Also, Vicky Moreno was very efficient explaining the leasing programs and maintenance programs. Keep up the GREAT work at Galpin VW! You have GREAT employees representing your Dealership! We couldn't be a happier couple, and we WILL BE back for our next car.
