About the Author

Clarissa Schilstra is a two-time cancer survivor. She was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia for the first time when she was two and a half years old.

So, she went through another two and a half years of chemotherapy, this time accompanied by radiation. She is now twenty-three years old and a graduate of Duke University. Her passion is helping others cope with the ups and downs of life during and after cancer treatment. It is her goal to become a clinical psychologist and she would like to help improve the psychological care available to adolescents and young adults who have serious illnesses.
