Waves of Pink II: Common Ground, Uncommon Courage
One of the most cathartic silver linings about my breast cancer experience has been the certainty and comfort I have in knowing how profoundly loved I am by my family and community. Chemo and cancer changed who I am by deepening the level of intention and integrity in my life, creating discipline about what matters most, and has shone a light on my ability to persevere. My time on this grand planet is precious, and I want to make the most of every minute. I’ve said goodbye to laziness, goodbye to complacency, and see you later to excuses. Cancer has helped me welcome a whole new level of commitment, passion, focus, perception, consciousness, and compassion for myself, my family, and my community.
