In January of 2019, my life changed dramatically. I was diagnosed with carcinosarcoma of the uterus, an extremely rare and aggressive cancer. My treatment started with a total hysterectomy directly followed by eight grueling months of inpatient chemo and six weeks of intense radiation. After a long recovery, I became passionate about giving cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers the help I so desperately needed during and after my own cancer journey: emotional and spiritual support during treatment and finding a new sense of direction once it’s finished. Through “The Cancer Journey Institute's” accredited coaching certification program, I now have the specialized training, tools, and techniques needed to pursue my passion by becoming a skilled cancer support coach.
