In 2016, two months, almost to the day, before my 60th birthday I was diagnosed with triple negative, inflammatory, stage 3, grade 3 breast cancer.
I chose to set aside my holistic stress management coaching business and did everything in my power to release the cancer.
I am happy to say, it was worth all the effort and I was successful!
My journey took many twists and turns.
I did a lot of research.
I did lots of complementary and alternative modalities.
I also found doctors that would work WITH me on the journey.
I made choices that were right for me.
One of the most heart wrenching decisions I made was to do chemotherapy.
It went against everything I believed.
I took time to meditate and decided this was the right path.
I am grateful I chose to do this.
There were other choices I made during the journey that were also right for me.
I chose not to do radiation and I chose not to get a double mastectomy and full hysterectomy even though in the genetic testing they found I carry the BRCA1 gene.
Again, these were the right choices for me.
At the end of the medical part of my healing journey (as with all cancer patients, there is a much longer healing journey to be made), I chose to change my name since I was not the same person I had been prior to the diagnosis. The full story of my name change is in my book “Mindset for Healing: A Profound Yet Simple Plan to See Healing from a New Perspective.”
There were lots of lessons that came out of the healing journey for me.
One of the biggest lessons that came to me through my journaling and meditation was that I was not stepping into my power as a healer, empath and intuitive.
I have now stepped into my power and I am here to help you step into yours!
