When John first met Trish, a breast cancer survivor, she couldn't seem to let go of the fear and anger that came with having the disease. She questioned why God would allow something like that to happen to her.

Now, as she catches up with John, Trish tells him about the moment when she helped her son's friend in his moment of need and how that proved to be an eye-opening experience for her. "It hit me that maybe everything that has ever happened to me brought me to that very moment with that kid."

"One of the most powerful side effects of pain is that once you survive a thing, you now have authority over that thing," John says.

Here, Trish opens up about how there is life after cancer and how a powerful and positive experience can come out of the pain and suffering.
