My Tam & Dr. Farah

Every once in a while you meet someone with whom you instantly connect, whose enthusiasm and joy are contagious, who makes you strive to better yourself.

My Tam Nguyen is one of those people.

Last spring, My Tam was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Diffused B Cell Lymphoma. True to form, she set out to beat Zee Cancer.  She started a blog, Tam That Cancer, and chronicled her journey through treatment and self-discovery with grace, humor and amazing imagery. She learned to accept help, overcome fear and test her personal limits in ways I can’t begin to imagine. And by sharing her story, she’s inspired countless others.

January 9th marked her last radiation treatment. She has indeed kicked cancer’s ass. What a great way to start the new year!
