Her main purpose is "Who can I reach today?" and "Whose perspective I can change today?" De'nicea believes that she was directed to do this to serve more people.

De'Nicea's story

She just graduated from high school, I was put on a birth control patch. Two months after of being out of the patch she discovered a lump on her breast. She went for a surgery and schedule for follow up check ups, but she received a call earlier than the pre-scheduled follow-up and got scared. The doctors found out that the tumor already spread and had to go in for another surgery. Dr. D has to do a regular check up every 6 months to check if the tumor will grow back.

What is the hardest part that you overcame that motivated you to move forward

For her getting the call prior to the pre-schedule follow up check up, it was also the scariest part of her life.  

How did you overcome that?

It's her going deep; questioning God why it is happening to her. Then realize the reason behind it is to deliver a message; share her story and raise awareness to teenagers that it could happen to them.

What influence you to have that perspective?

As a child, she grew up in a church, relying more on religion. It made her want to do a personal self-conversation.
