"The experience in many ways stripped me of my ego and allowed me to become my authentic self. "
“I have been going to a camp called Camp Quality since 2014. This camp is where kids with cancer go and get to be kids again. We go for a week in the summer and I have a “camper” that had cancer. All the kids that go there have or had cancer and multiple kids had Hodgkins, but I honestly didn’t know what it was- I just knew *of* it.”
“I confirmed my belief that we must look at all the wonderful things we have in life and practice gratitude, even on our darkest days. In order to overcome our life’s adversities, we must focus on what we can control as opposed to what is out of our hands. “
"I’ve definitely learned to just go with the flow and realize that I can’t change anything, the only thing I can change is my attitude. I’ve learned to worry less and to just deal with things as they happen, that has helped a lot."
"Be sure to follow the exact orders of your doctor. Pray. Stay positive and have those around you deal with anything stressful and/or negative in your life so you can place all of your focus and energy on the fight. Be honest and open about how you are feeling emotionally and physically. Allow yourself SELF time."
"I am trying to spread the word that cancer effects the lives of many, no matter the age."
