For Cheyanne Shaw, a 25-year-old fitness influencer diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer in December of 2016, a positive attitude was everything...

And now she's celebrating being cancer-free!

(SWIPE) Words can’t even begin to describe the emotions I’m feeling right now, but let’s just say there has been plenty of happy tears today-- - - I was informed today that I was one of the sickest patients my nurses have seen in a very long time... I literally had one foot in the grave because it was Stage 4B and it didn’t help that the cancer I had, was resistant to chemo. Y’ALL, LOOK AT US NOW!-- Cancer is a tough battle, both mentally and physically. When it comes to cancer, attitude is everything and I knew I would never let cancer take my smile or positivity away-- I am forever thankful and blessed that God placed me in the hands of my doctor and her team. I started off as one of their patients but now I’m leaving with a brand new family. I’m forever thankful for all of you and all of your support through the hardest time of my life. Thank you all so much❤️ I could not have done this without you! This isn’t only a victory for me, but for US-- - - I still have my CT scan to just go over everything one last time on the 2nd and my CA125 was at 9 today! WHOOHOO! I still can’t wrap my head around this y’all! ---- - - To celebrate my last day of Chemo, tomorrow, April 28th at 12PM / PST, I will be launching my new handmade/ hand stamped jewelry line called @monarchjewelry_cs -- I hope y’all love these as much as I do and don’t forget, the first 50 orders will get a personalized thank you letter from me----OMG YA’LL WE DID IT!!!------ - - #lastdayofchemo #chemo #cancersurvivor #ovariancancer #ovariancancersurvivor #ovariancancerawareness #ibeatcancer #blessed #godisgood #selflove #strength #bestself #bodypositive #fitness #fitspo #alphalete #seattle #happy #healthy #recovery #happyandhealthy #tampa #monarchjewelrycs #seattleseahawks #lifeaftercancer
