In this week’s episode, we learn the story of Emily King. In 2019 at age 27, Emily was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer that has progressed to stage 4. She’s been through 35 rounds of chemotherapy and is battling a treatable but incurable condition. Instead of giving up and feeling sorry for herself, she started a non-profit called “Fighting with Hope” through which she prepares and delivers care packages to other cancer patients going through chemotherapy. Great inspirational story.
