Reyna used to be a very active person, but a car accident when she was 19 changed that. Not long after, Reyna started feeling pain in her hip. The first doctor she saw misdiagnosed her with hip bursitis, so she was very surprised when eventually she had a lump the size of a softball in her hip. Walking became difficult and her hip would lock making her demanding job even harder. Reyna believes she may have had a desmoid tumor in her hip for two years before it was officially diagnosed.
“Living with a desmoid tumor has been the most life-changing experience…I guess the positive of all this is having to slow down and get to know myself and what my body is telling me. I have hope that things can get better.”
