Exceeding all My Expectations

Exceeding all My Expectations

A Message from Olivia:

I am now nearly 3 years cancer-free. I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, at 14 years old. I went through a year of treatment and an above knee amputation. Since my cancer journey started, I have achieved so many things that I wouldn’t have ordinarily done. I’ve given speeches at fundraisers, met people from all over the world and I’ve gained experience in life.

“Since my cancer journey started, I have achieved so many things that I wouldn’t have ordinarily done. “
I decided recently to start competitive swimming and I’m exceeding all my expectations. It’s hard to believe it. With having cancer, my view on life has completely changed and, although it’s not all rainbows and sunshine, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
