Karen Palmer holds one of her daughters in the picture below.  Although Anisa, at her young age, does not understand  why she cries when anyone else would hold her, she knew she wanted to share every moment in her mothers ' arms. 

Karen Palmer died shortly after being diagnosed with metastatic  stage IV breast cancer. It was a final lung failure that took her last breath. The term metastatic is defined as a secondary cancer or a cancer that has spread from one place to another. In this case, the malignant tumor had spread to the lungs. Karen Palmer was also adopted at a very young age and the records are hard to resurface about her birth parents complete background and health records.  MomnMe

The health care system has improved in the Virgin Islands since the 80's but many health care facilities still suffer. Although more individuals know or have heard about breast cancer, still many individuals suffer from the lack of knowledge about preventative measures to reduce risks for breast cancer. Karen Palmer worked out  and ate healthy but dealt with abuse from a previous marriage. She also had  adopted parents that  both died of lung cancer due to smoking.
