Cancer Resources

When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer at age 31, I was clueless where to begin. Should I go with the physician I felt most comfortable? Should I get a zillion opinions? What questions should I ask doctors? Should I tell everyone? Do I want them to help? This page can be used as a resource to help provide some hope and guidance on dealing with breast cancer.

 Healthy Lifestyle

I see wellness as a 360-degree approach. It’s not just one avenue that increases our longevity and quality of life. I’ve focused on clean eating for my diet, regular fitness activities, frequent mindfulness techniques and non-toxic self-care and cleaning products. My body and my home are focused on healthy aka clean living. As a cancer patient, survivor, and thriver…I look good and feel great. Below are some of my favorite posts with a little research and a lot of information. Check out the full Healthy Living Resources page for all our content including written posts and videos.
