Show Notes

When a person is diagnosed with cancer they can choose to walk that journey privately or lean on their support system to help them through it. When Desiree Nuckols received her breast cancer diagnosis at 28 years old, she decided to go through that journey with the help of her family. Just a few years prior Desiree's mother passed away as a result of breast cancer. Although the journey she was about to embark on was scary, it also led to a couple of blessings such as Desiree giving her life to God, her family being more unified than ever before, her learning how to advocate for herself at the highest level, and her paying the kindness that she received forward to other patients. Listen to hear how in the midst of the challenge, her family found moments of gratitude and joy.
