Twist on Cancer: Being diagnosed with cancer at 29 years old and pregnant came as a huge shock. It was the most frightening and challenging time of my life, but it showed me that I have a reserve of inner strength that I didn't know existed. My journey taught me to always be present and to focus on the important things in life. My experience has helped me to find joy each day in simple things and to be grateful for every moment I am given.
