Home > Testimonial > Destiny’s Story

My name is Destiny Wagner and I am eight teen years old. I will be attending Manhattanville College in New York in the fall. My experience in high school definitely attributed to my success now.

My sophomore year in high school my mom got diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer.  The day she told my sister and I, the sidewalk seemed a thousand miles longer. I’ve never known anyone personally with cancer and what I did know about cancer was not enough to help my mom. I took it upon myself to learn more about the disease and my mother and I grew close. I prayed so much for my mother to get better, but once she started chemo, she was like a completely different person. When I thought her days couldn’t get any worse, they did and when I was certain she didn’t have any more fight left, she sure enough did.

I just want to thank the United Breast cancer fund because I don’t know how I would be able to go to school.

Thank you so much and A million prayers to you all.
