"It was in Juno, I was a full-time student. And just got sick one day with dizziness, and I vomited blood. And it was on the weekend, and I called the clinic and they told me to come right in. They took a biopsy I was in intensive care for three days. They took a biopsy and it came back positive. So they sent me right up to the medical center in Anchorage and I had an operation within a week. It was very fast, very sudden, very shocking because I wasn't ill."
