Carolyn’s cancer journey started in 2010 when she had an early miscarriage and was simultaneously diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) at the age on 31. Within weeks she was on a daily regime of oral chemotherapy and though she had a few hiccups along the way, she has been thriving ever since. Though having more children naturally didn’t pan out, she has found joy in being a loving auntie.

It wasn’t until 2018 that she was fortunate to discover Pink Pearl after hearing about the organization from a friend. She feels grateful to have had the opportunity to attend two retreats and has made some lifelong friends. She is excited to be able to promote and give back to the organization as an ambassador in Ottawa, Ontario.
