Less than 2 percent of cancer patients are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness when they're under 20 years old. That might seem like a small number, unless it's you or someone you love.
Alexa Crawford was diagnosed with cancer at 16. Now, her business TEAL -- which stands for "the Ever After Lady" -- offers a community for women who are battling diseases.
Women share their stories of battling life-threatening illnesses at theeverafterlady.com.
"I am cancer free and now I'm here to provide community to those who are surviving and who are struggling but are ready to conquer the disease and become a survivor," Crawford said.
