    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Chemotherapy can really drain everything out of you. The best thing to do is stay postive and find something to enjoy everyday:)

    Skin changes

    Side Effects

    I have a few side effects from my chemo. It did some damage to my kidneys and liver, but nothing serious. I also have darkened streaks on my skin caused by the medications I was on. The spots are mainly on my thighs, shoulders and stomach.

    Lost loved one

    Loss

    My two best friends in this world were my moms parents. Five years ago, they passed away two weeks apart from cancer. It was the hardest two weeks of my life. They were the ones who got me through my treatment, so it was really hard to see them lose the fight to dancer. But, i know that a part of them lives within me.
