Show Notes:

Twin sister Alicia Sayas returns to the HHI microphone to unpack her individual cancer journey perspective. I was immediately struck by the fact that Alicia’s focus and determination was heavily driven by three factors: feeling empowered to seek a second opinion to help ensure receiving quality medical care, significant emotional support, and an intrinsic belief that God allows things to happen in one’s life for a greater purpose.

While still actively treating for her disease, along with her twin sister Aleta, Alicia is extremely hopeful for a successful outcome.

Listen now to this compelling story of hope and be encouraged, as I was, by this amazing cancer fighter.
