Being diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer at the age of 31 is probably the most terrifying thing I’ll ever experience. After months of ignoring symptoms, because I thought I was too young to have serious health problems, I was diagnosed and began treatment immediately.
The scariest experience of my life has since turned into an inspirational one. Fighting through treatments has been a difficult task, but my 5 year old daughter and the constant reminders that there are good people in this world who care keep me moving forward.
I was home and in a lot of pain after my first treatment when I received my Lemons of Love care package. I was so touched by the kind gesture of someone I’ve never even met that I forget all about the pain. What may seem like a simple care package (with really useful stuff!) has since motivated me to remain positive for myself and also for others who are going through hard times as well.
Thank you for the true reminder that no one fights alone.
