Diagnosis Day: The Day I Still Can’t Believe Exists

I think that most people live their lives either dreading the day that they may be diagnosed with cancer, possibly because of a history of it in their family, or live their lives where the word cancer is only a horoscope sign. For me, I never imagined that I would hear the words, “You have cancer.” Having been diagnosed with cancer when I was 21 years old is still, and I think always will be, extremely surreal to me. Sometimes, I forget about the small details of my day prior and post the official diagnosis made by my doctor. In this video, I share with you the conversation I had with the doctor that diagnosed me and what steps I took after to make sure that I was on the path to healing.
