28-year-old Alison Bewalder is the Head Athletic Trainer at Steven's Institute in Hoboken.
She was diagnosed last October with Coroidal Melnoma or cancer behind her left eye.
She had no symptons.
In fact, it was because she tore a contact lens and had to get a new eye prescription that the doctors found it.
Three days later she underwent surgery and radiation, killing the tumor but in the process altering the vision in her left eye.
Alison's battles are not over yet.
She is cancer free but there is the possibility it could spread to the lungs and liver.
Though Alison says don't feel sorry for her, she has more appreciation for life now than most.
