What do you want others to know about EHE?
“Being diagnosed with EHE mere weeks after the birth of my third child was shocking and soul crushing. My head filled with so many negative thoughts after hearing “stage 4,” “metastatic” and “incurable.” I’m a 35 year old, healthy female…or so I thought. I read a powerful message from a fellow EHE patient; “you could die with EHE and not from EHE.” I began treatment, started running and switched to plant based. From that moment on, my drive and determination shifted; I can do this, I WILL do this. As a mother to three children under 5 years of age, I will do everything in my power to be present for my babies and loving husband. I am an EHE survivor with metastatic cancer in my lungs, liver, thigh and knee and I am not letting this stop me from just living.”
