Danielle Stepp: Learning the Value of Time

Friday, October 27, 2017

"You don’t really appreciate time unless you’re looking at a diagnosis like cancer. . . You don’t appreciate the time that you have until you know that there could potentially be an end date.” 

Danielle Stepp was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma--cancer--as a new mother of a three month old baby girl.

Her treatment entailed 12 debilitating rounds of chemotherapy.  As Danielle made her way through this very difficult period of her life, she held on to her family, her friends, and what she calls "Prayer Power" to help her arise above the immense hardships.  She also used her fighting spirit and treated cancer like a bull, and Danielle "wrestled it to the ground."

Now a year cancer free (!), Danielle looks back to see what helped her through this hard chapter, how cancer has changed her, and what she has learned about not taking time for granted.
