Barbara Padilla... A Cancer Survivor!

Wednesday, September 09, 2009

This season's America's got talent features a fabulous vocalist, who happens to be cancer survivor. Her name is Barbara Padilla.

Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, Barbara Padilla made her way to Houston for treatment at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. She had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and underwent chemotherapy at the center. During this time, it was feared she might not sing again.

She put to rest any doubts that her musical career was in jeopardy after a successful audition with University of Houston. She earned a scholarship and began a challenging, yet inspiring, artistic journey at U of H.

"I was sick for five years, and now, I'm in remission," she said following her performance. "And now, I'm here. What a dream! When you have hope, you keep going."
