When Lourdes Colon (Without a Trace) was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, she decided she would record and share her journey. She was at the peek of her acting career, having being touted for an Emmy nomination for one of her TV performances, when she was diagnosed back in September 2010. After the diagnosis she decided to bravely film the painful journey of dealing with the disease and her decision to take the natural healing and detoxification journey to ultimate recovery.
Lourdes has been cancer free since September of 2012 and getting stronger every day. In 2013 Colon was awarded the “Latina Of Influence Award” by Hispanic Lifestyle Magazine.
