Life Before and Life After Cancer

(4) Comments | Posted January 25, 2015 | 10:02 PM

When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, I remember other survivors describing to me that I would start to look at my life as "before cancer" and "after cancer." When I first heard people speak of this, I thought to myself surely it can't be so simple. But the...

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it is an excellent reminder of the importance that gratitude can play in our lives. It is also a great opportunity to not just be singularly focused with our gratitude for the holidays, but to find ways...

Meditation and My New Normal

(1) Comments | Posted October 17, 2014 | 8:18 PM

I first heard the word "new normal" when I was completing my chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer. It was used to describe the "survivorship" period of post-cancer life once the treatments are complete and we enter life with this surreal experience of cancer as something that we endured.

It was...

Get Through Cancer: Check?

I grew up with goal setting as a key component to our family life. Literally -- my sisters, Mom, Dad and I would meet at my father's office at least once a year and assess our dynamics as a family unit. We would whiteboard a traditional SWOT exercise (Strengths, Weaknesses,...

Did I Manifest My Cancer?

(0) Comments | Posted July 17, 2014 | 11:41 AM

I'm not gonna lie. I've dabbled in my fair share of "woo woo" -- however we wish to define it. From mind-body medicine to mantra-based meditation. Acupuncture, feng shui, psychic readings, past life regression, rebirth experiences, tarot card readings -- you name it, I've probably done it. I trust that...

For the last several months, I have been in serious purging mode. ​I would imagine this is a common step for people once they emerge from the cancer cocoon and step into this thing called "the new normal."​ As I begin to gain more energy and vitality everyday, I ​better...

I recently attended a large fundraising event and ran into several people who I had not seen in years. One woman came up to me and complimented me on how good I look -- "such a fun short haircut" she said. I proceeded to my standard response -- "I'm just...

Got Cancer: Now What?

(29) Comments | Posted March 18, 2014 | 7:24 PM

There is really nothing that can prepare you for a cancer diagnosis.

A Cancer Love Story

(0) Comments | Posted February 13, 2014 | 10:17 PM

I have a confession. I'm so grateful I got cancer. There, I said it. It's confusing to confess something so morbid, but as my year cancerversary (Feb. 14) makes its mark, I realize that despite the pain, poking, prodding, and discomfort, this year was perhaps one of the most important...

Do Be Do Be Do

About a year and a half ago I attended my first official meditation retreat. It was with Deepak Chopra and The Chopra Center. Prior to this, I was what would be described as a "crisis meditator" tapping into the practice at the most expected of times (i.e., New Year's resolution)...
