Dana was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome at the age of 18. She was a young, artistic, field hockey player that was just hit with a hard diagnosis. She attended a talk with a cancer survivor when her family member connected her with Dr. Angela Cooke-Jackson. Dr. A thought it would be helpful and fulfilling if Dana shared the story of her treatment. Dr. A worked at Emerson College and knew she could find a good student that could help Dana produce her story. And that is how Dana met Taylor.
