Rugby helps women tackle their weaknesses and discover their strengths. Playing rugby also helped one young woman in England beat leukemia.
Five years ago, when she was 9 years old,14-year-old Georgia Tayler was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Playing rugby helped her beat leukemia.
Tayler spent almost two years in a wheelchair while undergoing chemotherapy, according to englandrugby.com. While being treated, she suffered a stroke that affected movement on the right side of her body.
Throughout her treatment, Tayler watched rugby games, but she never thought she would play because of her illness, the website said. When she was in remission, she decided to get fit and began playing rugby.
