Survivor celebrates five years without cancer

Email News Alerts

Marcia Plasil got her life back five years ago after a stem cell transplant.

After being diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma in 2002, Plasil, of Nevis, decided "cancer is not going to change my life."


Since then, she has been stubborn, she said, and fought hard against cancer.

To celebrate her five years of being cancer free, Plasil will participate in this year's Relay for Life.
