Keep Moving Forward.

Being diagnosed with breast cancer twice (8 years apart) and then a rare primary brain tumor in between was the motivation to develop this blog, along with encouragement from my sons and husband.

All the medical advancements are remarkable and have helped so many people such as myself, and the continued research keeps updating our knowledge. There is not a single solution to being “healthy” and personalized care is the future.

We need to also take an integrative and common sense approach to our health and well being. I want to encourage and inspire others to be more engaged and thoughtful about their health. Don’t take it for granted.

“The capacity for hope is the most significant fact of life. It provides us with a sense of destination and the energy to get started.”


Be a Part of the Solution.

One of my goals is to inspire (and remind) others to embrace life now by focusing on what’s important to you. Everybody is dealing with something, and having the right perspective helps you deal with those challenges. Mine happened to be cancer and a brain tumor.

A lot of research was done to better understand how everything is connected and the people I have met along the way are amazing. It also inspired me to earn an international health coach certification.

My sense of humor, stubborn streak, faith, family and friends help me get through this. Life is truly about the small things you do daily. Enjoy it!  Feel free to reach out to me. If you don’t hear back right away, I’m probably outside doing something I enjoy like running or hiking.
