The Cancer Saga

On May 31, 2012, a week after my 22nd birthday, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer. On June 6th I went in for a diagnostic laparotomy and they removed four cancerous tumors. I started chemotherapy on July 9th. I had a second surgery on October 9th where they completed a hysterectomy and removed spots on my liver and diaphragm. I went from a collegiate athlete to a cancer fighter in a month, check out my story here.
