Big West Freshman of the Year Mahalia White has found out she had Stage 4 Cancer (Hodgkin's Lymphoma) after season was over.


 

Hey all, it’s me! So 2018 is gonna be a big challenge for me. For those of you who don’t know, I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, called Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, the day right after my birthday (Dec. 3rd) (Happy Birthday to me am I right 😜) During my first season of college volleyball, which was a great season might I add lol, I was experiencing a lot of back pain but I had thought that it was just due to all the extensive activity that I was doing. Right after season, I got an MRI and cancer was definitely not something that I expected. I’ve been in and out of the hospital a lot this past month and tomorrow I am starting my first chemotherapy. With that being said, the cancer is curable and can be treated, but it will be a long and challenging six months. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a fighter and I attack anything (mainly volleyballs, but cancer too now) that’s in my way! 💪🏾 Love, support, and prayers would definitely be appreciated 😘😘😘 P.s. you already know I’m still me and I had to flex in the picture even though I look busted😜💪🏾
