Through my pain, I have found purpose…
As cancer showed up in my life, I struggled. Dad was the first loved one to be diagnosed, it was on my 19th Birthday. He went in for emergency surgery and the surgeon came out and said he had only 6 months to live. Fast forward to today, many close family members, loved ones, dear friends have received the familiar cancer diagnosis, many of them at young ages.I felt helpless. I felt like cancer was ambushing my family. I was desperate for relief. As my sweet mother was losing her battle, I found a coach. It changed my life. I learned how to manage my mind and my emotions. I found relief. I then became a certified coach.
Now I dedicate my life to helping others.I help women who have been affected by this awful disease, not through their own diagnosis but through loved one’s diagnosis. Maybe that is you. Cancer may have surrounded you for many years, you may have felt the attack on your life. Or maybe you had never really thought about cancer. Perhaps cancer seemed like something that happened to other people, and then someone you care about was diagnosed.
When cancer arrives it feels like a bomb going off. Your life is turned upside down. You want to feel better, to know that you will get through it but you have a lot of doubts. The uncertainty wears you out. You may not be taking good care of yourself physically and emotionally. You want to do better, but you just can’t seem to get it together. If that is you, then I would love to connect and share what I have learned. If you are feeling overwhelmed and are ready for some relief, I can help.
Your loved one has cancer, what now?
Managing Mind & Emotion
So many negative emotions arise when a loved one gets diagnosed with cancer. Fear takes over your mind, your life. Anxiety sets in. Suddenly there is a whole new set of problems to deal with, serious problems. I understand the pain of hearing the diagnosis. I understand how bad it feels. Helpless. Hopeless. Many people don’t realize the toll it all takes on a cancer patient’s loved ones, but I do. I remember so many times feeling stuck in this dark place, wanting to feel better. I even felt guilty that I was feeling so bad, when the person who had the cancer was the one really suffering.
I turned to food to feel better. Others turn to alcohol, drugs, shopping etc… it doesn’t really matter what you do for relief because it does not work. I’ve experienced all of the pain – and I’ve learned a few things. After supporting so many loved ones through this process – I know how to feel better. I can’t wait to share what I have learned with you.
