A dynamic feminine fragrance that opens with a citrusy scent from lemon, orange blossom and
pear aroma. Its base is composed of a deep blend of vetiver, rich moss and cedar.
Leilah’s love of the ocean is unmatchable. She constantly dreams of living beside the sea feeling
the breeze touch her face as the sounds of the waves crashing on the seashore creates an
unending music in her ears. She dreams of riding a surfboard into the ocean and riding the
waves with skill and grace. The dancing of the fishes as she gazed into the deep blue sea. School
is coming to an end and she is going to the sea again. She would be able to enjoy her summer
along the beach without any worries and just enjoying every moment. She closes her eyes
wishing that school will end so that her dream could come true.

My name is Roger Rojas, I live in Kingsville, Texas with my family. I am an Inspection Consultant
for a company called Base Line Data, Inc.. I graduated from Texas A&M-Kingsville with a Major
in Industrial Technology and Minor in Business Administration. There has been a history of
cancer in my family. My grandmother passed from Lymphoma that spread to her bones. My
aunt passed from colon cancer that spread to her liver. My dad had a tumor removed from his
colon, but no cancer.
I was diagnosed with Stage II Adenocarcinoma of the rectum. This has drastically changed my
life for good and bad. I had a colonoscopy on October 1, 2008, followed by CT scans and PET
scans and various bloodwork. I was given radiation treatments from October to December, five
days a week. Along with radiation treatments I received Chemo(flourouracil), via an infusion
pump seven days a week. In January I went through lower rectal recession to remove the
tumor. After surgery I went through the fulfox regiment of chemo from Febuary to August. I
have bloodwork taken every three months along with a flex sigmoidoscopy.
I am now cancer free. I suffer from my bowel movement problems everyday, I just watch what I
eat and try to control it with medicine. If I have an accident I just clean up and move on. I suffer
from neuropathy, but hopefully with time that will heal itself. I started exercising and feel like
that helps a bit. But I am cancer free and I’ll take that any day. Prior to my diagnosis my only
symptom was slight constipation.
Cancer has had many effects on my life, mostly on my children. It’s hard to explain colon cancer
to kids. I have a strong support network behind me. Currently I try to avoid fried foods, but no
major changes to my diet. I just eat smaller portions to avoid constant trips to the restroom. I
control my constipation or constant trips to the restroom with lomotil and stool softeners. I
have a constant urge to have a bowel movement, this is an effect from the radiation treatment.
I can no longer hold it for too long. Along with this, I do have pain. I suffer from neuropathy in
my hands and feet. I also suffered muscle loss due to the chemotherapy.
My words of advice are, never give up or lose hope, no matter how bad the diagnosis. Anything
can happen. Be prepared to ask the doctors everything and anything. I wish I would have asked
more questions. – Roger Rojas
