MEET LINDSEY

Lindsey Motley, Survivor

Greenville, SC

LINDSEY’S STORY

In April 2013, I was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer at 26 years old, while also 17 weeks pregnant with our first child, a girl! I was having bleeding issues from constipation due to prenatal vitamins and pregnancy, which were investigated by colonoscopy. I had a colon resection one week after my diagnosis. I began chemotherapy bi weekly (FOLFOX and 5FU) at 24 weeks pregnant, and completed 12 rounds. Our daughter, Lilla, was born at 37 weeks between rounds 7 and 8 of my treatment. The baby is 100% healthy and mama is right behind her!

LINDSEY’S ADVICE

Stay POSITIVE. It’s so easy to say that when you’re not in your toughest of moments, but having been there, I know it makes all the difference. Fight your fight! Each step of the way, hold your chin high and fight.

WHAT ONE MILLION STRONG MEANS TO LINDSEY

One Million Strong is a force of bravery, a message of hope and an act that can make a difference!  I know that each of these one million are brave, because I’ve been there, too! It takes a lot of bravery and strength to fight through the emotions, surgeries, treatments, and beyond, whether a patient or family.  It’s also a message of hope, because we’re here! I hope that others can find strength through the stories of other survivors’. This is an act that can make a difference by educating our society on the importance of preventative medicine related to colon cancer.
