The desire to help young women reach their full potential has always been there, and after battling with stage 2 breast cancer in 2011 at the age of 28, she seized the opportunity to do just that.  Her desire to educate young women about her story and help them become advocates for their own health and wellness was blossomed from this experience.  Mercedes brings close to 7 years of customer service experience to For Our Daughters, Inc., and a drive like no other to see young lives changed.  To her, long lives are what it’s all about.
