I started playing soccer at the age of 3, and I haven’t stopped since.  Volleyball is also a huge hobby for me.  Working with animals is also. I work at a vet clinic as a Vet Tech currently and it’s my dream to own my own business one day.

Biggest take-away(s) from your cancer experience.
That I was given the chance to be a cancer survivor.  BUT, I wouldn’t have been able to say that if it wasn’t for Dr. Diamond and all of the wonderful nurses helping me get through it all.
