My Story

I am a breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with grade 3 intraductal carcinoma in 2013. I have gone through the emotional turmoil of a cancer diagnosis. And I struggled through multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation, and hormonal treatments.

After treatments, I felt weaker, exhausted, and suffered from debilitating brain fog. My business was my mind and now I no longer had the energy or the brain power to work. I lost parts of my memory, including the details of a family vacation just before my diagnosis.

After becoming lost in a park near my home, where I had been many times before, I sought professional help. I know the immense frustration of struggling with focus, concentration, memory and using my brain productively. And I experienced how devastating the weariness and debility of cancer-related fatigue can be. You simply do not have the energy to live life productively.

Chemo brain and cancer-related fatigue were just beginning to be recognized and documented in the medical community. Diving deep into the scientific studies and cancer guidelines, I found the answers I was looking for. I learned to overcome, prevail, and flourish after breast cancer treatments.

You Can Live a Better, New Life After Cancer

Feeling detached from my old life, it was impossible to get back to “normal.”  My old life didn’t exist anymore. I had to painstakingly navigate through brain fog, cancer-related fatigue, and the expectation of going back to the way things were before cancer. I felt alone and that no one understood what was happening to me. I was supposed to move on after completing my cancer treatments. But I couldn’t. I still had lingering body, mind, and emotional issues to process. My breast cancer ordeal was not over, it continued.

But with time, I accepted this life with limitations. And I learned to move past them. I learned to live a better life.

Determined, I got up off my couch. I started eating better, moving more and developed other healthy habits. After 5 years of living a healthier life and learning to run, I ran a full marathon to prove I could. And I studied hard to become a Certified Health Coach so that I could help you learn discover your possibilities too.

The second C is “coach “. I hope to be your inspiration in putting the fragments back into a solid line. Over time, you can form a clearer direction that is unique as you.  The C is reversed to indicate that life after cancer is different than it was before.
