- Woman travels New7Wonders of the World after she was diagnosed with c****r
- Megan Sullivan travels for 13 days
- She says she traveled the world with a new outlook in life and that is ‘to live more’
What would you do if you find out that you have c****r? Well, one patient Megan Sullivan decided to “live more.”
In her article posted on Bored Panda, Sullivan said that she traveled 28,211 total miles; had been in 12 countries, 15 flights, 5 hotel night stays, 13 days. All these started after she was diagnosed with c****r.
“I fell 50 feet climbing in Yosemite, got hit by a car and then diagnosed with skin c****r, all in one month. Two weeks later, I decided to see the 7 New Wonders of the World in just 13 days with a new outlook on life: to live more now,” Sulivan shared.
It all started in Yosemite Valley where Sullivan climbed the Nose route on El Capitan.
“I was 2,000 feet up when I took a terrifying 50-foot fall. After a fall like that, I started to question everything; from why am I putting myself into these scary situations to what is driving me to seek out these ambitious climbs? What am I trying to prove to myself, or better yet, to the world?” she wrote.
A week later, she was hit by a car and then diagnosed with skin c****r during a routine check-up.
These things, however, did not stop her from living.
“In my lifetime, the greatest learning moments have come at a time of tragedy and loss. From loss comes radical change, for it opens up a space that is yearning for something new. After the worst month of my life, I started to rethink how I was living my life. I came to this amazing realization… that the only thing stopping me from having everything that I ever wanted in life was simple: me,” Sullivan noted.
Sullivan then decided to go to Chichen Itza, Machu Picchu, Cristo Redentor, Colosseum, Petra, Taj Mahal and Great Wall of China; in that order.
Furthermore, she said the only regrets she has in her life are from the missed opportunities that she never took a chance on.
