Ann

My mother died from leukemia in 2008. I wanted to donate blood in her memory. It was through my attempted blood donation that I was eventually diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer at age 42 with NO symptoms. I had surgery in 2009 followed by 9 months of chemotherapy. My friends rallied around me and took care of my 3 kids - from driving to cooking. I am forever grateful. After chemo finished, I started back to school and training to become a hospital chaplain. I hope to make this journey easier for someone else.
