I wear corrective lenses to see the world around me clearly, but at the age of 22, cancer came along and gave me a bigger lens to see through. My life will never be the same and although this may be the case, my only desire is to enjoy every moment that I can and to rid myself of deep and dark emotions through reflection and tears.

Life does not stop here. I am a young woman who loves life and will one day day be able to look back and be able to smile at wonderful memories, nod in agreement to life’s lessons, and sigh knowing that I have lived.
