Emily has her son post diagnosis and survives UC, PSC, cancer and transplant with optimism

Emily has been battling serious illnesses, PSC, UC since she was 19, and liver cancer at 33. As a mother, she has done her best to create an optimistic life with as little fear for her young son as possible as she has survived a colectomy, cancer treatment and a liver transplant. She discusses what it was like to be in survival mode for most of her adult life, what it meant to be a “sick mom” and how her outlook since transplant is all about her zest for life and what might come next.
