Terri Griffin

I am a special child of God who has experienced trials and tribulations throughout my 55 years. But God is not finished with me yet; believe me when I say that when He is, I'm ready.

Cancer has been in my life since age 13. On 3/17/1976, my dad Thomas Clinton Yates passed away at age 46 from leukemia. On 1/31/1988, my mom Dorothy Elaine Yates passed away at age 54 from ovarian cancer. My maternal grandmother Edith Taylor was diagnosed with breast cancer in her 60s but lived to be 91. My mother-in-law Rebecca Dargan was diagnosed with breast cancer but years later passed away from pancreatic cancer on 6/24/1997. And then the most unthinkable, unimaginable diagnosis ever was my 16-year old son Kevin Terell Yates w/cancerous germ cell tumors and passed away 6/26/1998 @ age 17 1/2. My 2nd oldest sister Darlene Yates is a 6-year breast cancer survivor at age 62, and my 4th oldest sister Twanda Ridley was diagnosed with stage 0 breast cancer at age 59. On 12/27/2016, after what I thought was going to be minor in & out surgery, I was diagnosed with stage 2c ovarian cancer @ age 54 -- the same age in which my Mom passed away. Here I am -- over a year later and feel great! I have an amazing support system to include my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ; soulmate/husband Jimmie Lee, family, friends, coworkers, church family members, medical staff, & other ovarian cancer patients.

Come walk with me! If it doesn't fit in your schedule, please consider giving a donation - note that anything is appreciative and nothing's too small.

Thank you for visiting my page. This cause is very dear to me, and I'll appreciate all the support I can get! Let's walk together because together we can make a difference!

All my best with love, Terri
