KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It's difficult to describe what the Chiefs mean to Christina Nunez.

"When I was going through treatment, you know, I was just watching the games and things like that and, win or lose, just watching all the fans and the sportsmanship, it's amazing just to see how everyone sticks together. Kansas City is amazing," she said.

The three-time cancer survivor runs an Etsy shop called 2311 Home Decor and More. It's an outlet not only for her fandom and creativity but it's vital for her health care too.

"Medical bills for me are just sky high because, after treatment, there's just tons of stuff that I have to do, so it's amazing to just have this little boost of income come in and just help out," Nunez said.

41 Action News is proud to report that Nunez just celebrated two years cancer-free. Now, she's hoping to celebrate another Chiefs Super Bowl win.

Nunez is simply joyful.

"Makes me feel happy inside to give little products that make people feel better," she said.

Nunez's shop is available online.
