In 2017, at the age of 29, Erica Thomas was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and her world would forever be changed.

She had a 2-year-old son, Gray, who desperately needed his mom to fight this disease.

"My fight wasn't easy. It was painful -- emotionally, physically and mentally. I always remember how hard I fought and how lucky I am to be here today. Without the care team at Vidant Cancer Care, I wouldn't be where I am today. I am truly blessed and thankful."         - Erica Thomas
