Writing this blog and sharing my cancer story has been very important to me for a couple reasons: bringing hope and positivity during a dark time, providing awareness to the trials and tribulations of cancer, and being able to accept it for myself. What it has led to is a few very unexpected things that I wanted to share!
In October 2016, not only did I cut all my hair off, but I recorded it! I posted the video on the 1 year anniversary and I was then contacted by someone from the website rightthisminute.com. And it somehow made it onto the news in many states! I received messages from friends and family in Wisconsin, Georgia, and Arizona!
I was also asked to be on a few Star Wars podcasts to tell my story and talk Star Wars. AND I was even asked to be a co-host on a podcast about Star Wars books. I am so thankful to have met so many great people from the Star Wars Community!
Below is the post from Right This Minute and also my original hair video. Also, I posted the links to the podcasts.
