One Year of Videos - Complete! :)
How are you doing? :)
If you were around last February you might know that I started recording videos documenting my cancer healing journey from a retrospective view with the intent of getting closer to publishing a book some day. I said I would record a series of videos for one year, and well, by God's grace, I did!
Last week I recorded something while driving and it was meant to be just a practice run, but it turned out pretty well so here ya go!
You can see in the video that I'm holding the phone (sorry!) :( so I bought a clip for my car and now if I need to record again it will be done hands-free!! (See the proof below...)
Now that that's out of the way! Here's what the video is about...
I was a 20-year-old student-athlete just looking for a break from a very dark and stressful time - recovering from mutilating surgeries and radiation treatments for stage 3 recurring melanoma, during what would have been my senior year of college. Instead of a relaxing vacation and training trip with my teammates, what came next preceded one of the saddest, most heartbreaking moments of my life. My health became a fast-ticking time-bomb and the decisions I made in the coming weeks would be critical factors affecting whether I lived or died. Not knowing what I believed, I began to pray, as did many others. Looking back now I see it as the most critical domino in a chain of events that led me on a rollercoaster ride to where I am today. In the moment, I felt broken, but looking back now, with all that happened I'm actually so grateful for it.
My video ends by accident when my phone stopped recording, lol. If it had continued I would have asked you...
Where are you in your journey? How are you feeling? What are you praying for?
I pray you find comfort and wisdom in my story and share the encouragement of my healing with anyone who can benefit from it. Please let me know how I can help you and your loved ones!
With love and prayers,
