Taira was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma, a rare, aggressive cancer of smooth muscle tissue. Here she introduces herself and gives thanks to family and friends, even people she's never met, for their support. While filming this video, some friends were in the room. Everyone was in tears by the end, so you'll probably hear some sniffling in the background.
Please follow Taira's journey on Facebook (Time for Taira).
