TOP 3 LIFE GOALS
My top 3 life goals that I will achieve are to become a oncology nurse, travel and love and be loved in return. I hope to travel to several countries such as; Peru, Croatia, Prague, Scotland and Ireland. One can only hope in life to find someone who truly loves them unconditionally and give that in return. I hope someday to find my partner in crime so to speak.
Biggest take-away(s) from your cancer experience
Cancer has showed me how much the human body and mind can endure. Since cancer I truly believe that anything is possible if you set your mind to it and work hard. Cancer has taught me so many hard lessons, teaching me to be humble, kind and passionate about life. Don't be afraid to go after what you want and know you deserve it. You do not need to live in doubt, fear or self loathing anymore; thanks to cancer ironically! Cancer has taught me to slow my world down just a bit to enjoy it and the wonderful people in it. Stress less, work a little bit harder at everything I do and to “get busy living” by enjoying life!
