True Life Story: Rare Cancer

In this episode of True Life Story, Amy shares her personal cancer story with the extremely rare form of cancer called Metastatic Retroperitoneal Leiomyosarcoma. Her diagnosis was a result of her just being tired.

She went to the OB/GYN and had an exam where she found out she had a grapefruit sized tumor in her peritoneum. Surgery and chemo didn't work for her rare cancer, unfortunately.

Throughout her entire experience, however, she remained strong. She says that you have to empower yourself, educate yourself, advocate. If you can't do it, find someone else who can do it for you.
