“We were able to raise more than $1,000 for the Harlem relay and so many of my friends, family and fans came out to support that I jumped at the chance to do another one,” says Carmelina.
After an unanticipated hiatus to beat a (Stage 2) Breast Cancer diagnosis following the release of her debut album "Morena," Carmelina returns as a true survivor. She has shared her survival story with Latin Trends Magazine, AllThingsGirl.net and GlobalGrind.com and she will host her own a fundraiser to benefit American Cancer Society and the Columbia University Medical Center at LQ’s in New York City on October 22, 2010.
"I never let fear inside my heart and learned that I had already beaten breast cancer through a self-test. My breast cancer diagnosis, surgery and chemotherapy were just stepping stones to my new birth as a stronger, more compassionate spirit. LOVE conquers all,” shares Carmelina.
About The American Cancer Society Relay For Life
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.
