Dying To Live #Cancer #Lupus

Amy-Susan-Crohn-author-of-Dying-to-Live-Cancer-LupusAmy Crohn shares her incredible story of survival and hope as she battles two life threatening diseases. From her book ‘Dying To Live Running Backwards Through Cancer, Lupus and Chronic Illness’: “At age 36, I was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer and Lupus, a dual diagnosis that was considered terminal. After my first highly invasive biopsy surgery, I was pronounced dead and revived with an emergency tracheotomy. The next three years were a cauldron of chronic care, surgeries, chemotherapy, rehabilitation, and my terrific fight not to die and leave behind my husband and two young sons. Fighting for my own survival I discovered the facts that could help millions of others who suffered abuse as children, and then became sick adults. My own childhood, as the descendant of a famous doctor, was fraught with dysfunction that led me to suppress the distress of the first 18 years of life that finally exploded as a cancerous tumor wedged between my heart and lung and an autoimmune disease that caused critical issues with my treatment.”
