She was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer while on air in 20?? after just moving to a new city and going through some major life changes. It wasn't easy but she fought hard and we are happy to say has been in remission since 20??. Shalinda is a warrior and she uses that strength and tenacity and channels into her work.
