Ashlynn's story

Going through the whole cycle of having cancer was both positive and negative for me. The negative effects were that I was sick and felt awful for a long time but, through all the pain I found who I was. I don't believe if I hadn't gone through what I did, I wouldn't be as good as a person. I became closer to God and He helped me through everything that came my way. It all started on April 16th 2009. I was 11 and started experiencing chest pains. The previous Sunday we had almost come a hair on having a wreck and I had slammed again the back of the seat incredibly hard. My mother and I thought maybe I had bruised my ribs. All through that week it had been difficult to breath without it being very painful. Finally come Thursday it had gotten even worse and I passed out, not being able to walk and I went pale. My grandparents rushed me to the hospital where I stayed a couple of days. About the third day I was diagnosed with Lyphomblasic Lymphoma. Which was a huge mass in my lung which caused it to collapse. I started chemo in just a few days and immeditly it disappeared. I still had to continue it for three years though. Through all the pain and suffering I had to deal with I'm so glad I had all of my family there for me through the whole thing. Also I thank God for always watching over me and easing some of the pain for me. That's my story c: -Ashlynn

Ashlynn and I spent the day together playing with makeup and hanging out. She wanted to film a tutorial and decided on a look inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Taking life for granted is something that I know I do, but meeting Ashlynn and hearing her story was a big reminder on how precious life is. I hope her story inspires you too.
