Cancer Interviews

Oct 29, 2022

Karla Chavez had just had her thyroid removed after a diagnosis of thyroid cancer, when she was jolted with more bad news: a diagnosis of Stage II Keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma, a rare form of cervical cancer.  After a battle that included eight rounds of chemotherapy and her learning she would have to wear a colostomy bag, Karla has resumed her career as a civil engineer in her native Honduras.  She is also actively involved with Cervivor, a US-based cervical cancer support group.
