Cancer, in spite of being one of the worst things that has ever happened to me, has given me many gifts. At 29 years old, the last thing on my mind was cancer, but as soon as I was diagnosed, I went into survival mode. I found strength that I never knew I was capable of having. I knew I not only had to be strong physically for my body to handle everything it was going to have to go through, but more importantly, I had to become strong on the inside. I had to be strong mentally to endure the chaos I was going through and I had to be strong for everyone that loved me. That’s what made me fight, I knew couldn’t let my loved ones down. Cancer gave me strength and I know I can get through anything because of it.
