'My name is Alysa Erwin. I am a pretty normal American teenage girl. I live in Petosky, Michigan. I love my family. I passed my drivers education class. I love music. I love my friends....and I beat terminal brain cancer. Yes. You read that right. I beat terminal brain cancer. I am here to share my story with the world.
My family was beyond supportive of me when I was going through this ordeal. I understand what other people are going through when they find out they have cancer. I was terrified when I found out. There were times that I thought there was no hope. Let me assure you there is hope even when you think there is not. I am living proof that what I am about to share with you is 100% true and I have the medical records from the University of Michigan Medical Center to prove everything I am claiming on this page.'
