My dad’s cousin, who is all too familiar with cancer, wrote to me “The C word brings out the best in us…the passion to fight because life is more precious when we have to fight for it.”
I am thankful that I have the chance to fight, and that at this very moment my body feels whole. Cancer does not define me; it has just changed the lens in which I view the world around me. I am thankful for my family, friends, Team KK, and every single person who has taken a moment to send words of encouragement and just simply pass my story along.
I am inspired by the people who have, and are, fighting their own battle. Thank you for showing me what courage truly is.
