Greensboro, N.C. -- Tonight all major broadcast networks will broadcast a special dedicated to fighting cancer. It airs at 8:00 p.m

Last year, News 2 introduced you to a young woman named Meleshia Daye. Doctors diagnosed her with breast cancer at the age of 24. Now, her breast cancer is gone and she wants her story to inspire others.

"Looking back from last year to this year how far I've come is just a miracle," Daye said.

At this time last year, she thought breast cancer would end her life. She wanted to make sure she married the man she loved before it was too late.

Now, Meleshia's life is getting back to normal.

"We all go through things and we never know why we go through things, but I'm glad that I did go through it and glad that god did choose me to go through because it's only made me a stronger and better person in the end," Daye said.

She plans to use her strength to spread her message of hope to anyone who will listen.

"We all need to get check-ups if something is not right. You all need to learn your body and know your body. No one can advocate for your body but yourself. If there's something that's not right, go to a doctor," Daye said.

Meleshia wants to work with young women who are also fighting cancer. She asked News 2 to share her email address in case any young women struggling with cancer want to reach out to her for help. You can email her by clicking here.
