?Breast Cancer Awareness Week?
My sister found a lump while breastfeeding her baby #4. She was only 35 years old. She quickly learned she had breast cancer and needed a double mastectomy and lymph nodes removed. This was followed by multiple surgeries, 16 months of chemo, 6 weeks of daily radiation, and many other health battles.
My sister is a RN who now volunteers her time at the Mayo Clinic helping those fighting breast cancer.
Her tips she always gives people, can apply to any hard situation we have to fight in life. (See above pic)
When I asked her, “what do you think has contributed the most to you staying healthy these 15 years?” She replied with,
“I’ve never claimed to live a perfect diet, but I have improved to live a much healthier lifestyle. 1. I incorporate and eat A LOT of veggies EVERYDAY. 2. I exercise or move my body every day, even if its just a walk. 3. I drink plenty of water everyday to help with detoxing. And 4. I still like to have sweets but I’ve switched to dark chocolate ones.”
She is a fighter, like I know so many of you are!
She is a 15 year survivor!
She said she’s more than willing to answer questions if you want to dm her @daneisenelson
