As she had seen her mother facing and battling with the same issue, it made her even more unsecured with her life. After successful treatment, she explained her experience as a cancer survivor,
"I’m clear. Absolutely 100-percent clear and clean."
"I watched her have a mastectomy, and then I watched her go through two years of chemotherapy and eight surgeries and a hysterectomy. I’ve watched this woman survive both of those things, so for me, there was always that sense that I was going to be okay, no matter what."
She is now back in her work and in attempts of raising funds for cancer research. She has further plans to accumulate a fund for MRIs and gene testing.
