I'm Kommah!

After surviving a 95% mortality rate from two rare forms of breast cancer, I now live to fulfill two passions. One, to share the power of hope and belief in impossible possibles. The other is to be the voice of the patient in medical and legislative arenas.

I am still here, I never gave up!

Silver Lining

Cancer was the best worst thing that ever happened to me.

"When you're in a dark place, you sometimes

tend to think you've been buried.

Perhaps you've been planted.


By Christine Caine

   This quote resonates with me in so many ways and this book is proof of my BLOOM.  There have been many times in my life where I felt buried, many of which I speak about in this book.  Not only did I feel like I was buried physically, but there were times where I was spiritually, mentally, socially, financially, and emotionally buried. What I have learned is, life is very unpredictable and even in the darkest moments we have to find a way to just be, if we are not able to flourish. 

   My challenges with cancer, adoption, and intimacy became the rich soil for the sprouting of this book. 

   This book is intended to lift up those who feel they have exhausted all possibilities.  Its intent is to encourage hearts and minds to push through the impossibilities and not just lay down and take it, instead BLOOM!



Kommah is one of eight patients represented in The California Cancer Patient Bill of Rights, which was unanimously passed by the California State Assembly.  

"The Cancer Patients Bill of Rights, which is the first of its kind in the nation, calls for six rights that every cancer patient in California should have from the moment of diagnosis to ensure they have access to the care that they need. The campaign was supported by Cancer Care Is Different, a coalition-based campaign effort led by City of Hope to improve patient access to advanced cancer care in California." (City of Hope)

"I was told I had a 5% chance
of survival in 2005.  I have beat
those odds despite having 2
rare forms of breast cancer.
I have lived through the IMPOSSIBLE!"

As a Patient Advocate, I am passionate about patient-centered care.  Every patient deserves the right to have access to care.
