In this third and final post, Anna shares with us some of the ways surviving cancer has changed her life and what helped to get her through the experience.
That is so true. I feel grateful to God that he spared my life. Life, to me, is more beautiful once you know you might not have seen a lot more of it. Every day is gorgeous, whether it be sunny or cloudy or rainy. It really taught me to appreciate the life I have been given.
What were some of the tools and resources you used to get through treatment and move into thriving in your life again? Who or what supported you to be able to get back to being a top student and involved in life again?
My parents played a huge role, along with my friends. Also, I gave a speech at relay for life right as I was finishing my chemo. This helped me put the past behind me and to get on a road to new beginnings.
What would you want other young cancer survivors to know based on your experience?Details
