During this interview we talked about:
- How a minor hiking accident led to her diagnosis of stage 4 colon cancer and Juvenile Polyposis Syndrome (JPS).
- Her doctors giving her a 6-11 month prognosis, three years ago.
- The treatment and support she received from the Cleveland Clinic.
- Why she needed a liver transplant after doctors finding No Evidence of Disease.
- How a liver donor was found and her relationship with this fellow church member.
- The role her faith played in her diagnosis, recovery and her life going forward.
