I AM MORE THAN CANCER

For almost 20 years, Daisha has battled this metastatic disease with faith, grace, poise and a strength that is unmatched!

When it comes to being a survivor, Daisha is the epitome of what the word means.

Since being diagnosed at the age of 15 with a rare cancer called ACC or adenoid cystic carcinoma, she has overcome the odds stacked against her time and time again!

For almost 20 years, she has battled this metastatic disease with faith, grace, poise and a strength that is unmatched!
