MEET SHANNON
Teal Diva is my heart and soul.  It is my survivorship; a gift from God to use my experience to help others. Here is a little about my journey:  

 

I was diagnosed in 2009 with clear cell carcinoma ovarian {k}ancer. I was 32. Just shy of my 3 year wedding anniversary.  And no kids.  I was told I would never bear children.  We were devastated. I went through six rounds of chemotherapy, finishing on Feb 18, 2010, and have been {k}ancer free ever since.  While going through treatment, I could not find anyone, my age, I could relate to.  After praying about it, I feel like God put it on my heart to create Teal Diva.  

 

As you peruse our site, I hope you walk away with tips and ideas on how to live after {k}ancer whether you are the one diagnosed or a friend/family member. We all have a story to tell. With me, I felt so lost after being diagnosed. I needed to find myself but I didn’t know where to begin. Life was overwhelming.

 

Within this site, specifically on our blog, you will discover things that have helped me re-discover myself and meet others who are living life after {k}ancer.  Built on the same principles as Teal Diva, I thought surely if this is something I needed, others could use it as well.  

 

Y’all, I am not perfect. I am just a girl who was diagnosed with a disease.  It was a wake up call and made me realize I needed to LIVE.

 

Follow along on the journey and let's help one another.
