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

On March 11, 2015, Natalie was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer.  Cancer was something she was well aware of, and through her event planning company, N.U.E. Event Planning & Services, she was an advocate in the fight against cancer.  While advocating and bringing awareness to this horrible disease, Natalie never would have thought that she would endure this battle.  However, because of the platform with planning and executing the “Forever Pink Soiree” Breast Cancer Awareness Galas, and hearing the inspirational stories shared by cancer survivors; helped her and her family prepare for this difficult journey that she experienced with being diagnosed with cancer. Natalie passed away in February of 2019 after a 4 year battle with cancer.

While going through her personal journey with Colon Cancer, Natalie’s devotion to bring awareness to health disparities, and bring hope to families through philanthropy work became one of high priority. It was her hope that We Stand Together, Inc., Nonprofit Organization continues to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen communities in the entire world.
