MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - A Midland native is overcoming the odds as a three-time cancer survivor.

Lauren Erdmann, 26, was first diagnosed with cancer while a senior in high school and since then she has overcome two different types.

Erdmann spoke about the challenges she's faced and how she keeps her strength.

"There were days when I was just like, 'I don't want to be here anymore. I'm so upset, I'm so irritated. I'm tired.' But I believe that God pushed me to be like, 'let's turn this negative to a positive and let's help people," said Erdmann.

Erdmann spoke Tuesday at the MD Anderson "Making Cancer History" seminar in Midland.

The seminar also gave tips on healthy lifestyle tips to reduce cancer risks.
