A Cancer Survivor Gives Back

“With my life on pause, I had the opportunity to look at the details of how I was living…gain a greater awareness of the blessing in my life…and build a better me. The whole time I was sick and receiving care from others, I was thinking…’I’m not going through this for nothing, how can I give back’?”
