THE SPIRIT OF CANCER
Hi, I'm Allyson and it is so lovely to meet you!
I am a wife and Mother to two amazing works of art named Sophia Lovina and Connor Elvis. I'm also a cancer crusher and completed fighting stage 3 colo-rectal cancer in 2013. My sister, Carolyn was diagnosed with leukemia when she was 12 years old. Carolyn is a survivor but has suffered the horrific effects of chemotherapy and radiation. She lives
in a nursing home, is confined to a wheelchair and is completely dependent.
I have experienced both sides of cancer and they are equally devastating.
Once the cancer diagnosis bomb was dropped my life changed in an instant and forever…
as is all of ours. The first thing I searched for was knowledge about this disease and my particular type of cancer. For the most part the only information I could find while surfing the internet sent me into a tailspin of terror and desperation. So I made a pledge that very first day to give back BIG and create a social forum where we can unite through positivity, compassion & support. You will only find hope and love here.
After finding the educated information I so anxiously desired from my doctors I continued on my journey. The next thing I longed for were examples of others who have been through this ordeal, fought cancer and won. I needed to hear stories about survivors. I needed hope. I began my research and found endless accounts from friends, family, celebrities and athletes that DID inspire me. I had to know that others had fought this evil disease and won. I had to believe that I could do the same. I believed I could. I did. YOU WILL TOO.
The ability to see clearly and intuitively into the nature of a complex person, situation, or subject.
We can discover, learn and apply when equipped with knowledge. Insight into the world of cancer will give us the power to explore options, make good decisions, and clear choices.
My goal is to share information, inspiration, insight and ultimately save lives. Young, old, every type of cancer, everywhere in the world, everyone~all of us.
