    • Society & Culture

ia Stokes is a dancer that got her fame on TikTok for doing dances in her hospital room while she was battling leukemia. After a year-long journey, Tia is now finally in remission.

So much good has come from documenting her cancer experience in the hospital, and she really encourages everyone listening in on today’s show to keep pushing through your hardships, no matter what.
 
Key Takeaways
JR downloaded TikTok in the summer of 2020. Yep! And then, JR saw Tia on the platform. Her dancing while battling with Leukemia really inspired him. People will never remember the way you look, but they will always remember how you made them feel. No matter what you’re going through, life is about bringing joy and happiness to others. Tia got diagnosed with cancer slightly over a year ago and she was determined to document her journey. Tia is a performer and dancer at heart. People are inherently good. This experience has shown Tia that there are SO MANY good people out there. Tia’s cancer battle was one of the hardest things she had to go through. Tia made a simple goal: Just to dance 15 mins a day. Tia talks about her husband and how supportive he’s been throughout her journey. There’s nothing wrong with being vulnerable and crying! Remember, there is so much to be grateful for, but it’s not always easy to see it when you’re going through adversity. Crying is a very healing thing to do for you and your body. You have to practice positivity daily. Tia lost so much of her identity and now she has scars from the cancer. However, she remembers it’s important to embrace these reminders.  Tia talks about her children and how they have been affected by this cancer and morality scare. Choose happiness.
