"Life has thrown a lot at me. However, I've never allowed it to get in the way of living my life the way I want to."
When Brenna Crowe (IG: @brennaleigh21) was 21 years old she was diagnosed with stage 4b Hodgkin's Lymphoma cancer. After having the cancer overlooked for more than a year by doctors, getting the diagnosis came as a shock to her and her family. However they were relieved because they had finally figured out what was wrong with her.
"At the time I thought it was the end of the world but looking back now going through that experience I learned a lot about myself. I had to receive chemo for 6 months and lost most of my hair which was very hard for me. I learned how quickly life can change and to never take for granted a single second we have on this earth."
"Today I'm 2 years cancer free and loving life. When I was diagnosed I started a YouTube channel to show people what i was going through. I went into everything with a very positive upbeat attitude and I strongly believe that helped me a lot. My videos have thousands of views and people constantly reach out to me for help. I'm so glad that by sharing my story I'm able to help others and talk them through some of the scary things I endured."
Brenna receives numerous emails from people stating how much her videos changed their lives.
"I've always wanted to inspire others and having cancer has given me that opportunity. Having a positive outlook on life has the power to change any situation you are in, and that's what I hope people learn from me."
Brenna wants her fans to know that just because you're going through a tough time doesn't mean it will last for ever. If you can change the way you think about things it can change the dynamic of the situation. Attitude and perception are everything.
Thank you Brenna for taking an unfortunate situation and turning it into a powerful movement.
Congrats on being FEARLESS!
