After graduating from the University of Oklahoma in May 2014, Reagan McDonald’s plans of moving to Moscow to share the Gospel with college students were redirected when she was diagnosed with leukemia in late July 2014. With a joyful spirit, an ever-positive attitude, and a faithful reliance on her Creator, Reagan fought and conquered her blood disease - she completed chemo and has been cancer-free since December 2016. Today, Reagan is on staff with Cru at Baylor University in Waco, TX, where she is sharing the good news, discipling, and mentoring college students.
