Edhild Schlender

“It’s a few years since my surgery and I finally feel like I’m getting back to normal and I’m building up my strength. I want to get onto my motorcycle again. I ride a big motorcycle and I would love to get onto it again.”


Edhild’s journey focused on the treatment and recovery process. The radiation treatment was particularly traumatizing. Despite this she remained positive during her recovery. She had a very specific goal in mind: she was going to get back onto her motorcycle.
