I hope my story helps bring positivity and encouragement to other cancer patients; especially ones as young as me.
The hardest stories to share are always your own, and this has definitely been the most challenging for me so far.
Last fall, I was given the opportunity of a lifetime to work, live and travel internationally for 4 months in Europe. While this was the most amazing experience of my life, it was also one of the scariest. On November 27th, 2018, I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, stage 4 while in Switzerland.
Although this has changed my life forever and put things on pause, I am so blessed to have made such amazing friends, who I now call family, in Switzerland and to have such a strong support system of family and friends waiting for me to get home.
I am now four out of six chemotherapy treatments in and on my way to being cancer free!
Through sharing my experience I hope this will bring further awareness to this incredibly “unfortunate” type of cancer that is most common in young adults – especially women.
Experience inspiring stories from our patients, family caregivers, physicians and others.
Tell others about yourself and your journey; inspire them to be MORE THAN CANCER.
Given the opportunity to heal, our bodies have superhuman powers.

Finally I made it to June 30th, 2020. I got to ring the bell! Finally this type of torture was done and I could move on to the next.
