Hi everyone! My name is Emma and I’m 24 years old. I study law, but I recently decided to pursue my passion for Marketing and NGO’s.
Paragliding, skiing, parachuting, paintball, enormous amounts of junk food are amongst my favorite things to do. I don’t want you to think I am hyperactive so I should mention my passion for crafting and especially knitting.
Four and a half years ago, I was diagnosed with a rare form of pediatric cancer. It’s called Ewing’s sarcoma and it’s usually found in muscles and bones. In my case, it was first found in my left pelvic bone and metastasized in other parts of the body later on.
After a series of chemo treatments, radiation sessions, biopsies, physical therapy and an experimental stem-cell transplant, I decided to share my story. It includes both happy and sad incidents, moments of laughter and tears, adventures and times I thought I was staring at a science fiction movie.My goal is to confront all the stereotypes regarding cancer and to prove that life does not end when it strikes; instead it becomes worth living.
