My youngest sister who passed away from Breast Cancer in 2009. -- Inspiration for the name of the RMT Network Inc.

The Journey begins...


First day of Chemotherapy.

The fight continues...through Chemotherapy, radiation, prayer, exercising and healthy eating.

“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”

― Barack Obama

Turning my story into inspiration...

Out making a difference in the community.

Breast Cancer awareness event with Rev. M - male Breast Cancer survivor.
  • A male child of a man with breast cancer who inherits the defective BRCA2 gene has only approximately 6% chance of eventually developing breast cancer and just over 1% with BRCA1.
  • A female child of a man with breast cancer who inherits the defective gene has a risk between 40% and 80% of eventually developing breast cancer.
  • Men with a genetic predisposition to breast cancer are also at higher risk of getting prostate cancer at a younger age than usually diagnosed.
It is important that cancer patients and their families know that they are not alone. We are here to help them walk through this journey, and to motivate and inspire them to reach out to other patients and their families throughout their communities. The hope is that this creates a ripple effect around the world.
