Cancer has become the biggest blessing in disguise that I have received in my life. It changed the way I was living and allowed me to find my soul's aligned path in life.
The moment Cancer became my biggest blessing: 6 years ago I had an onset of very unusual symptoms. My vision becoming doubled and blurry, I got daily headaches, numbness in parts of my body, and more. I kept going about my day-to-day life until I finally got an MRI and found out I had a brain tumor in my Pineal Gland. Part of me already knew this. I remember thinking “oh yeah, I do.” There was a part of me that was already aware but didn’t want to believe it was possible.
I couldn’t help but think “why me,” and be angry with the Universe! I was flown in a life flight emergency airplane that night from everything I knew to Colorado where I underwent brain surgery. Over the next year and a half, I went through a second brain surgery, chemo, and radiation. It was a rough road. My second home became the hospital and my life as I knew it was on pause. It was intense. There was so much physical pain. I lost 60 pounds, my health, my hair, and the life I knew. My faith was at an all-time low. I knew I had to find a reason “why” this was all happening: to answer the “why me”. To have faith in the Universe for this pain - that there was something bigger happening. That I needed to change my story so I was no longer the victim. And while that reason was unclear during that year and a half, the answer revealed itself.
The “why me” finally made sense when the doctor told me the tumor was gone and said “go live your life.” I knew I had to live my life differently. I had to follow my intuition. I had to change. In 2018 that’s exactly what I did.
Since I changed the way I live, my life has been full of synchronicity, joy, alignment and love. There are so many tools that have helped me along this journey during and post treatment, and I would love to share them with you if you are suffering. This message is to inspire you - to let you know that there is hope. To help you realize that cancer can be the biggest blessing in disguise. That Cancer can show you THE WAY. And show you the way to continued healing beyond the physical cancer.
Whether you are facing the reality of a diagnosis, or on the other side of treatment and feeling “what now?” If you’re facing depression, anxiety, desiring peace, facing the question of “why me,” having the life you wanted and seeing it fall apart, the hard days with health, putting life plans on hold, putting stress on family and friends, or uncertainty - this message will inspire and empower you.

A cancer diagnosis encourages us to know both the fragility and hopes of life, and with that knowledge to live most fully.
My family is stronger than ever. I allow myself to take the time that I need to be healthy. I don't feel obligated to do things anymore, but choose to focus on what is best for me and my family. I have developed a network of over 25 women that have been diagnosed and use each other as a support system.
