Elly Brown lived a full life as a freelance performer (acting, hosting, singing and modeling) until oral cancer appeared--and drastically altered the course of her career. After having much of her tongue and jaw rebuilt out of bone and tissue from her leg, Elly began the slow process of recovery, chronicling much of her thoughts and feelings on social media.
Elly was shocked to discover that people connected to her content and videos after cancer even more deeply than when she was "normal". Ten months after her surgery, one of her Facebook videos hit one million views. Three months after that, one of her videos hit fifteen million views! Ever since then, she has been focusing on creating content that helps people who are suffering after major life-changes, and encouraging people to follow their dreams.
And what about her performing career? Oh, she's just getting started!
