Kellee Mulhern’s tale of facing cancer head on, is one that many women across the world encounter.
In fact, about 1 in 8 American women (just under 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime.
Despite the constant warnings that early detection is the key, sometimes there are circumstances whereby it has already spread before it is caught.
After our article yesterday on Kellee Mulhern, we asked her to open up the door to what is her life and share more about her personal situation. And we ask you again if you can help raise funds for her treatment, or know anyone who can, please click here.
I am married. I married a wonderful man named, Matt Mulhern on Sept 15 2007. I had the two girls from a previous marriage, and was married to Kevin L Jackson from 1995-2000. Their father lives in Texas.
My husband Matt is very supportive, loving and kind. He treats my girls like his own. He has never been married before and does not have any children.. other them mine.
My oldest child is Kylie Jackson. She will be 18 this Sept. 1st and is a Senior at Rosemount, MN Senior High School. Kassidy Jackson is my youngest. She will be 15 years old this July 16th. She is a 9th grader at the same school.
On terms of what advice I have for them, I guess I tell them to ALWAYS follow the Golden Rule: “Do onto others, as you would want them to do onto you.”
They love life, are good students, have respect for elders. Most people tell me, “your kids are so polite.”
And, they don’t drink, smoke or swear… they are much better than I used to be:)
I used to take everything for granted. Sweat the little stuff. Swear at bad drivers. Get frustrated easily. Now. I live one day at a time.
I LIVE each day to the fullest and never look back… I keep pressing onto the future.
I LAUGH and enjoy life, and be cheerful even in my struggles because of my faith and LOVE… I love others unconditionally, and most importantly I love THE only Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. There would be no love without him because he is love.
I never take the next day that I wake up for granted anymore because life is too short to be angry and sad. What good will those feelings do, other than make us sick spiritually and physically?
I hope (I know) the girls will grow up to be beautiful women on the inside and out! They know God and abide by his laws. I trust that I did the very best that I could in raising them and they will be protected by their angels.
I cannot fear anymore… I wait patiently for my outcome. I have another scan at the end of May to see if my tumors have grown…shrunk…or are GONE.
