Hi, if you don't already know me, my name is Darcie Peña and I am a 6X cancer warrior.

It all began in 2013 with a cough that would not go away. After many pulmonary tests and medications later, I was diagnosed at age 24 with Stage 3B Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. As a young, healthy woman and non-smoker, with no family history of lung cancer; it was shocking to say the least. I was quickly assigned an amazing Oncology team and started treatment with a high dose of Chemotherapy and Radiation. After this round of treatment, in January of 2014, I had surgery where they removed the middle and lower lobes of my right lung as well as multiple lymph nodes. Then after another round of Chemo, it seemed that I was in the clear until one of my scans showed I had a recurrence in my neck on the left side. I then underwent another round of Chemo and my scans were clear until a year later. At this point the doctors decided to try radiation alone.

Flash forward past two more recurrences and almost 5 years later, here I am facing yet another battle. My medical case has been a mystery to all of the doctors I see.

As always, Positive Vibes ✌🏽
