Danielle survived Lymphoma disease.
"Today, at 26, I think I'm out of the darkness. I have a different reality than most people in my life, but it's not better or worse — just different. My family is a lot closer, and I've seen a new strength in my brother and my dad. I admire my mother more than I thought possible for her endless optimism. I've learned how to say no to other people's needs and put my own first, and it's become easier to make healthy habits a priority. When I was diagnosed, I was angry that my body had betrayed me and grown tumors inside me. Running helped me forgive my body and appreciate it again."
