Alisann's Story

Alisann's Story

Hey friends! Meet Alisann. She entered our March contest to “Win a Night In” on Faceplant...and SHE WON! I think we can all agree that right now is a perfect time to relax with a new Luxe Robe, Bamboo Hemp Slides, and a $50 Uber Eats gift card.
Here is Ann’s inspiring story of persistence and triumph.
Thank you for sharing it with us, Alisann!

 

 
My dream is one that many have, but the results are not the same. I was diagnosed with Terminal Brain Cancer - CNSLymphoma - in 2013. I refused Chemo and made a choice that I would survive. I was told I would not survive if I refused Chemo, but here I am, writing this to you in 2020.
I worked very hard to stay healthy, and I used my art to help me through the journey. After brain surgery, I was left with some deficiencies. I used my art skills - drawing and painting - to rewire my brain to heal. Many of those who love and supported me knew this was a "dream." I knew it was going to be a "Dream come True." And it did. My main inspiration during my healing was to paint dogs. I adore ALL dogs and painting them brings me joy and heals my heart as well. Here is a photo of me just after 2 years of healing with my beloved Abee who stayed by my side every minute of my healing.
Thank you for reading my story.
