My Story About Self-Love

by Vikki Ramdass May 11, 2021

My cancer survivorship journey has proven to be a difficult one for me. I recently completed radiation in 2020 and I am now cancer free but the big question is, for how long can I remain cancer free?


To My Younger Self…Would You Believe Me?

by Vikki Ramdass April 21, 2021

Words may not express all my feelings to you as you will be faced with so many challenges later on. How can you prepare a child for all the issues that adults face? Whilst everyone’s childhood supposed to be filled with toys, joy, wonderful family memories, mine was a little different.
