You fought all odds and survived cancer, could you share with us your story and what motivated you to keep going? I was diagnosed which stage 3C dysgerminoma cancer at the age of 17. I underwent 8 surgeries and 3 cycles of chemo. The fight with cancer was a physical and mental battering, but I learned to embrace the pain and use it as my fuel for my journey to getting well and I fought the disease tooth and nail and just hung on. What kept me going also was the unstinting support of family and my doctors. Were there any moments when you lost hope, if so, how did you fight in those instances? The fight with cancer was full of pain and fighting it was not easy, however I never gave up because losing hope would mean letting cancer win and I refused to let that happen.
