Stephanie Doucet | Personal Story of Hope

After surviving childhood leukemia, a central nervous system relapse is where Stephanie lost the vision in her right eye and needed a bone marrow transplant. Stephanie completed a B.Sc. in Wildlife Biology and Conservation. Then, while pursuing a Veterinarian Assistant college program, she was diagnosed with a radiation induced meningioma, requiring two surgeries, which left her with no hearing in her right ear. Stephanie has developed many tips and tricks over the years to keep a positive outlook.
