Meet Chelsey Light. In the summer of 2011, Chelsey, like her classmates and friends, was excited and preparing to enter in to her freshman year of college. This Summer of new beginnings took a sudden turn for the worse when it was discovered that Chelsey had a large mass, that needed immediate surgical attention to determine whether it was cancerous. 5 hours later, Chelsey woke up to the news that she had been diagnosed with a rare cancer – one most often found in young boys. Doctors were able to remove most of the mass, but still, chemotherapy and radiation were required to prevent further spreading of the cancer throughout Chelsey’s body. Just a few weeks after diagnosis, Chelsey amazed those around her by saying: “It hasnt spread and it isnt spreading. It turns out I have a really rare cancer that normally young boys get. Im not dying, and AM NOT DYING. But, I go sometime very soon to have a port put into my chest for chemo.Like, probably in the next week. I will start chemo later that day. I will have 6 rounds of chemo, another surgury to remove the remaining tumor, and probably more chemo. Then depending on the situation probably radiation“. Chelsey’s conviction, courage, and bravery shone through and continues to shock, and leave those around her awe-struck. A lover of all things owl and sock monkeys, she wears tie-dyed t-shirts to receive chemo treatments and even has sent similar shirts to children throughout the country who are also going through difficult treatment. Butterfly Kisses has been blessed to be a part of Chelsey’s fight against cancer.
