“Metastatic cancer doesn’t have to be seen as a death sentence. But we need funding, more awareness, and patients' voices to be heard!”

In 2005 I was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer at the age of 27. I underwent surgery, three rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. In 2007, I developed mets in my kidney, brain and left breast. I was told then to get my affairs in order and enjoy my life.

I became a naturopathic doctor, educated myself on how to best live a full life with metastatic breast cancer, and here I am ready to celebrate my 42nd birthday.

I’ve endured over 150 rounds of chemotherapy and still counting, advocate daily for the implementation of a naturopathic plan encompassed with allopathic medicine for cancer protocols, and truly believe in the power of positive thinking.

Metastatic cancer doesn’t have to be seen as a death sentence. But we need funding, more awareness, and patients' voices to be heard!
