Interview with Shannon Villalba: Cervical Cancer Survivor

This week Mary and Alex sat down with small cell cervical cancer survivor and advocate, Shannon Villalba. Shannon's cancer went undiagnosed for some time, and when it was finally diagnosed it was grade 4. With the help of chemo, radiation, and a wide array of holistic treatment, Shannon was able to fight her cancer and is nearing the ever important 5 year no evidence of disease marker.
