After her diagnosis, she started video blogging under the handle Radiant Racheli and recorded her entire diagnosis and treatment journey in it’s most raw form. In her videos, she laughs, she dances, she cries and, most importantly, Racheli Headshotshe maintains her mantra: “everything is going to be okay.”
