Local 6 anchor Bridgett Ellison and meteorologist Troy Bridges visited traffic anchor Jessica Sanchez to check up on how she is feeling after winning her fight with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Jessica's tumor is gone, she is done with chemotherapy and she's now battling the fatigue from the chemotherapy--but she says she thinks she will be feeling stronger soon.
Jessica credited a lot of her recovery to the overwhelming support she received, especially from her mom.
"She dropped everything 4 months ago to take care of me," Jessica said. "When she leaves I don't know if I'll know how to run dishwasher!"
She also said the Central Florida community showering her with support and love helped her during her recovery.
"Gosh what I'd like to say to everyone is I made it and it's flown by it's been four months since I was diagnosed," Jessica said. "The last few months were a blur of course but I made it and I beat it! I strangled it and then stomped it into the ground and then ate it and yeah."
