“Having loss my mother from breast cancer, I have firsthand experience on how the family is left behind and how financial needs can overwhelm the loss. My mom left behind seven (7) children and a husband of 49 years and while our pain was great, the support stopped after the funeral. I want to help the families who are left behind.” – Lj

Why Make A Difference?
“I believe every woman has a story that needs to be told” ~Lj
When I hear Lj speak about his foundation, I hear a deep passion in him to help as many people as possible. When he speaks about his mother and her battle with breast cancer, it’s evident he wants to keep her vision alive through helping others. His passion for helping people comes directly from God—only God could give him the vision, strength, and courage to do such things. When Lj talks about his counseling career, his deep desire to help all types of relationships thrive to their fullest potential is clear. However, his main focus is on supporting women all around the world. He wants us to know that WE deserve to be respected, loved, and treated as queens and for us to accept nothing less! He wants us to understand our self-worth and to have a true understanding of our precious value in being women, because we are children of God. He wants every woman to take a stand when she is being treated badly (in any form or fashion). He inspires women to rise up, take a stand, and support each other during trials and tribulations, which we all deal with every day. Lj has a loving and very giving heart, but don’t be mistaken by his 100- percent-keeping-it-real comments! This is the ONLY way people will get a true understanding of Relationships Matter! Lj strongly believes every woman has a story that needs to be told. So, what’s your story?
At this moment, I don’t yet consider myself a survivor of breast cancer but rather a victim of this vicious illness. This past year has been the most intense in every aspect of my existence, from battling a monster called breast cancer to trying to keep a balance or a somewhat normal life. But everything I have done has been with my kids in mind. They have been my motivation and rock through this entire ordeal. I have learned to appreciate others and their struggles, which makes my struggles seem inferior. I have learned to open my eyes and heart to strangers, which has given me hope and a true meaning to the word “selflessness.” I have come to understand who my real friends and family are. One day, I hope I can call myself a survivor. But for now, I am a work in progress. I know I have not lived my life to the fullest and that is my ultimate goal. Thank you Lj Is Making A Difference.
Cancer and illness has affected members of my family, throughout these different trials and tribulations the love and care of others was of great help. Whether it simply be words of encouragement, helping with transportation needs, or providing financial support the humanity and compassion of others has been of instrumental value to our family. By supporting a foundation like “LjMD” we can make a difference in someone’s life during a tremendous time of need.
