Andrea Berardo's Team Sparrow takes on Disney 2018 Fundraiser
Because of my family history I had been going for breast imaging every 6 months for years. Each time they would find something and biopsy it and it came back as normal. In July 2017 I heard the words that no one ever wants to hear and no one can ever be prepared for. “This one is cancer Andrea”. Diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma I had a double mastectomy a month later.
My sister in law arranged for Sparrow’s Nest to start delivering meals to my family. I was furious, I felt like I was admitting defeat. Until that first delivery. My husband was caring for me, running our 3 children to all their activities, getting ready for to school and those meals were one less thing for him to worry about. Dinner would be ready.
I am now on the mend with just reconstruction surgeries ahead and want to give back. I have seen how this charity changes lives and guarantees a meal when everything else seems so uncertain. I will run for those who can’t and I will run because I won... I am stronger than cancer!
