About 7 months ago I became ill. I had to take care of myself and while my body was weak and my mind was strong.
Most people believed that I was away in paradise, when the truth was I was dealing with my own health issues.
My concern was my workers, and continuing to advocate for them and whether I was able to return to work with good health and energy to continue to advocate keeping the high demands in perspective. .
My life changed when I found out I was sick. After surgery I was diagnosed with a rare cancer and have underwent several surgeries. The rare cancer was called "Urachal adenocarcinoma."
My struggle with the Medical system, was so similar to the injured workers problems. I realize that most workers are not real good at understanding the medical system, talking to doctors, keeping up with medical appointments, and attempting to make WCB satisfied with any progress.
I needed to advocate a for second opinion and I had to research the condition on studies completed in Japan,Europe and North America, I believe that my long journey to good health has been achieved because of my own advocacy to resolve the problem quickly,
This means that my advocacy for workers, and WCB changes will again be stronger than ever.
Always remember my passion for change at the WCB, and representation of workers is my priority.
Unfortunately, life sometimes gets in the way for progress in a timely manner and it does not mean that I am going anywhere
soon. Lots to do before I am done.
Remember that the challenge is not to create stress rather to deal with it positively and resolve the issues
