Do You Have What It Takes To Ride With A Diva ?

Don’t know if any of you watch America’s Got Talent, but one of this year’s contestants is a cancer survivor who was treated in Houston at M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center. MDA is where my "Big Brotha" Ruffus received his treatment, and so many others "Alma, Patti, and Margy…" ALL CANCER SURVIORS!

Here is a little about Barbara Padilla, a lady with an angelic voice who is a finalist in this year’s competition! There is also a link to a clip at the bottom of this e-mail, her voice is a testimony to the power of faith!

Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, Barbara Padilla made her way to Houston for treatment at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. She had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and underwent chemotherapy at the center. During this time, it was feared she might not sing again. She put to rest any doubts that her musical career was in jeopardy after a successful audition with University of Houston. She earned a scholarship and began a challenging, yet inspiring, artistic journey at U of H.

"I was sick for five years, and now, I'm in remission," she said following her performance. "And now, I'm here. What a dream! When you have hope, you keep going."
