MEET ARIELLE! At age 29 Arielle was diagnosed with ocular melanoma, a rare and deadly form of metastatic cancer.
A large cancerous tumour was discovered in Her right eye during an optometry exam in November 2018. Radiation treatment by means of two surgeries and what has transitioned to ongoing treatment since December 2018 has presented her the opportunity to learn about herself, self care, mental health and why giving back to the community that she is now part of is so important. Thank you Arielle for joining us on The Identity Project, a My Why podcast.
