On this episode, we talk with Radiant Racheli Alkoby, who was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma at age 21, during her senior year of college. After her diagnosis, she started video blogging under the handle Radiant Racheli and recorded her entire diagnosis and treatment journey in it's most raw form. In her videos, she laughs, she dances, she cries and, most importantly, she maintains her mantra: "everything is going to be okay." Racheli endured 12 rounds of chemo and endured some harsh complications, including blood clots in her lungs and chronic lung toxicity due to one of her chemo treatment regimens. Racheli has continued to be an advocate for young adults with cancer for the last 2.5 years since she finished treatment. In addition, she is a newlywed, having gotten married in March of 2018.
