Get to Know Life as a Cancer Survivor!

Welcome to Life as a Cancer Survivor.

My name is Jelena and I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colorectal Cancer at age 34.

As someone with no family history of the disease and not knowing anybody else that had it, I felt pretty alone. I struggled to find information about what treatment actually would be like without being scared by the statistics of the grim side of cancer.

My hope is that this channel will be a helpful resource not only for those that are just starting their life as a cancer survivor but also to those that have been a part of the cancer world for a while. Join me as I talk about my journey from diagnosis to navigating life after treatment.
