I’m a super survivor

Never give up

I have spent the last three years going through cancer treatment hell and have survived against all odds, thanks to a new treatment approach called immunotherapy.

I haven’t shared much of my journey as it was happening between 2015 and 2017, but now that it’s all over, I have an amazing story to tell.
