JaLaine Diagnosed at 19

"I was diagnosed at the age of 19 and I am now 23 years old and still battling cancer."

My name is JaLaine and I am a three time cancer survivor. I was diagnosed at the age of 19 and I am now 23 years old and still battling cancer. Battling cancer for four years now, I’ve had three major surgeries and have been in and out chemotherapy while completing my studies in college.

In the midst of everything I’ve been through I still was able to finish college and graduate despite everything that I’ve been going through while obtaining my degree. A year later from graduating I am still battling cancer and will not let cancer define who I am.

I am going to continue to run the race to beat cancer.

Are you a survivor, spouse, friend, or caretaker with a story to tell? We'd love to hear from you.
