Radioactive I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in January 2017. In the 4 months that followed I went through several treatments that included both surgery and radiation. I decided that to keep my mind off what was happening I had to keep doing what I love the most: Dance!! My favorite dance teacher and I began working on this choreography as a way to take my mind off the cancer. I was inspired by the fact that during part of the cancer treatment I actually became radioactive, and had to stay away from others for about a week. The song "radioactive" by Imagine Dragons describes the composer’s personal struggle with an illness that leads to an awakening and a new start. It helped me focus on staying strong and resilient, and to keep a positive attitude. I hope that this can also be an inspiration for others fighting cancer.
