SPOKANE, Wash. - Kristie Ryser turns 22-years-old on October 18, 2013. But at just 22-years-old, newly married with a wonderful husband, Kristie is dealing with something most women her age don't have to worry about.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer this last April when she was just 21-years-old. She thought she felt a lump and when she told Ryan, her fiance at the time, he told her to go to the doctor right away. Sure enough, it was cancer.

She and Ryan were married just two months after her diagnosis in June and Kristie is so thankful for him. She just finished her last chemo treatment and will undergo surgery in November.
