Who says having cancer has to bring you down? Not Ana-Alecia! This amazing woman from Dallas was diagnosed with a rare uterine cancer that has spread to her ovaries and stomach lining. After surgery to remove some of the cancer, a new spot was found on her spleen, forcing her to be hospitalized on chemotherapy. But nothing will stop this beautiful lady from feeling her best and fighting! In this inspiring video, Ana-Alecia and dance partner, Danielle, fight the chemo blues with a dance party in her hospital room!
The two women dance to the song “JuJu on that Beat.” Ana-Alecia wants to encourage others to “not look at cancer as a death sentence.” Instead, she wants to inspire others to “try to make the most out of bad situations,” Ayala states, “I also want to encourage cancer patients loved ones to step out of their comfort zones (as Danielle did for me) and be silly, have a dance party, be present in the moment and have a great time.” She says, “Laughter is the best medicine and I hope to make people smile, even at the expense of my bad dance moves.”
Well, Ana-Alecia, I’m not an expert on judging dance moves, but you’re a pretty amazing lady! We’re cheering you on! Keep on fighting and dancing!
