Loriana Hernandez, Fox 7 Austin

How else would a good news reporter handle a profound life change? What if that change involved a Leukemia diagnosis? Former Fox 7 anchor Loriana Hernandez opened up to the world, her friends, and her fans on Facebook and on a personal blog about her battle with cancer. We've followed her through chemotherapy, and watched as the fitness buff struggled to walk seven laps around the cancer ward. Processing her experience like a true journo, Hernandez breaks down her treatment and doctor-speak and shares experiences she picks up from fellow patients. More importantly, she reassures us with pictures of that megawatt smile.
