Not only did I have stage II breast cancer that already traveled to my lymph nodes, but I found out I had the BRCA1 mutation that was passed to me & my identical twin sister from my dad. Going through stage II breast cancer, during a pandemic was a tumultuous journey.
After offering my Virtual Assistant services pro bono for a small breast cancer organization that was near and dear to my heart, I realized that I could turn this into a small business. I figured if I could build myself back up and start a business during this hectic time of uncertainty, I could help other small businesses do the same.
That is how my business name came to fruition: Virtually From The Ground Up.
This may sound unusual to some, especially if you never had cancer, but I am thankful for my experience. It saved my life and helped me find my true passion. I am also grateful for cancer because it saved the life of my identical twin sister, Mandy.
