A decade of loss and challenge had given me the tools I needed to face the ultimate challenge that I was given on that April evening…..my challenge was to not just live, but to THRIVE through my cancer. I took those tools and coping skills, and I dove head first into this “shite storm”, that would in some ways become the best thing that ever happened to me.
I know…..you are thinking….what the feck is wrong with this woman. But hear me out….I totally adjusted my sails, I learned to navigate through the storm, while at the same time becoming an advocate for others in the process. I became an improved version of myself post cancer, and found out things about myself that I would never have guessed possible.
