On Christmas Eve, Alston was planning to take her own life when police intervened and took her to a hospital. A CT scan revealed a brain tumor. Within days, she received surgery to remove the tumor.

“A few weeks after the surgery, she found out her tumor had been upgraded to stage two, meaning radiation. She knew right away that she wanted proton therapy, a very precise form of radiation,” the ABC article states.
