Battling cancer seems to most people to be terrifying, but the process can often turn into a positive, life changing experience as in the case of Wylie resident Jessica Scott Turner.
She no longer has to rely on anti-depressant medication, as she did for years, to get through the day and now finds herself more outgoing and engaged in the lives of those around her.
“Cancer made me realize that life is a gift. Every single day is a gift,” she said. “I look at cancer as a gift because it completely changed my life. I’m just so happy to be here experiencing life.”
