My Story

Shannon was diagnosed with DSRCT, a very rare and aggressive cancer. She had gone through two chemo regimens and had surgery. The Doctor's did not have any more conventional methods that the family felt comfortable moving forward with. Although this was the biggest challenge of her life, she often saw it too as a blessing. If this had never happened she did not know if she would ever have grown to appreciate life and the ones around her the way I did. She was a huge lover of the fall. Shannon liked to travel and see beautiful places. They just got back from an amazing trip to the Bahama's and it was so surreal. She does not like spiders, anything with numerous legs for that matter. Shannon could also do without veggies.
