In Loving Memory
"Natalie’s strength and her wonderful faith in God was unwavering and inspirational. She inspired and touched the lives of so many throughout her cancer journey. She was a true warrior who impacted so many and taught us to never give up. She never allowed cancer to steal her joy and defeat her, and because of that VICTORY remained hers. She fought a good fight, she finished the race and kept her faith." (2 Timothy 4:7) ~ Natasha Mathias

While advocating and bringing awareness to this horrible disease, Natalie never would have thought that she would now endure this battle. However, because of the platform with the “Forever Pink Soiree” Gala, and hearing the inspirational stories shared by cancer survivors; It helped her and her family prepare for this difficult journey.
