Cancer Made Me A Better Person

There is not one right or wrong way to do cancer. These words and this experience is wildly unique to everyone's personal experiences and we all respond to trauma and adversity differently. For me, when I was growing up, I learned from a very young age that there is no use in sulking and to take adversity and become better and stronger because of it. Don't get me wrong, I still acknowledge all of the sadness and anger that comes from an experience like going through cancer at age 21, but I make it a priority to take those emotions and turn them into a positive outcome.

So, in today's video, I talk about just how I did that and continue to do it as a cancer survivor. I want to hear about the ways that you became better! Let me know in the comments.
