Kelly Young | Acinic Cell Carcinoma

Kelly Young Acinic cell carcinoma

“When I was 25 years old, I found a knot behind my ear. At the time I was pregnant with my second child. When I had surgery to remove the knot, the doctors discovered that I had acinic cell carcinoma, which is cancer of the salivary glands. I had my parotid gland removed and have been in remission ever since. 

When I came in for my checkup this week, I wasn’t even thinking about it being my five-year anniversary. It really made me feel special when they gave me the seeds and everyone cheered for me.”
