There are few better times to send a heartfelt Thank You than Valentine’s Week. I have been blessed by an abundance of love and support throughout my journey with breast cancer. My family, friends, patients, peers, and those who didn’t even know, have been a beautiful light along this road to health and recovery. After taking the time I needed to adjust and heal, I am ready to share my story with you. I have been humbled by the support that came flowing forward. I realize that my sharing has been a bit limited, and there have been many questions. Opening up about my story will not only help me move towards peace, but hopefully help others who may be dealing with a difficult diagnosis.
I have an open heart and welcome your words of wisdom and encouragement. This is an ever evolving journey and there is much I have to learn. I will never forget the day of my first PET scan where I would find out how advanced the cancer was. I had never prayed so hard. My prayer to God was that I would willingly walk this journey, if He would only give me the chance to do so. And He has. So, here I am…walking, learning, healing, and teaching. I have dedicated this past year to working with top professionals and advancing my training in integrative care, with myself being my best case study. I have utilized our clinic’s services to the fullest and have benefited immensely from enhancing my health throughout treatment. My goal is to provide a greater awareness of how to protect your health and improve your outcomes by incorporating advanced nutritional programs, monitoring your biochemistry, and balancing your mind-body connection. This past year has been one for the record books, and my resolution for 2013 is to HEAL in the greatest sense – I will share this journey as well.
Thank you again to all of you who have shown unbelievable love, expressed concern and kindness, hoped and prayed along with me and have opened your hearts to support me. My gratitude is beyond words.
I have created a donation site to help with my substantial medical and health costs over this past year. A large portion of the donations will be dedicated to “paying it forward” by offering services to help others improve their health, no matter what diagnosis they are facing. Please help if you can. Thank you.
