As this year draws to a close, we here at SurviveDAT have been looking back and thinking of all the young women whose paths have crossed with ours. As they have shared their stories with us, you can see in their words and hear in their voices their determination to beat this thing invading their bodies. We are thankful to be able to be a part of their journey, and hopefully making it easier to bear. While the holidays can be stressful, there are many things to be thankful for, and we wish you a joyful and happy holiday season, with hope going into the new year.
