In my healing journey, I faced childhood trauma triggered by my experience with ovarian cancer. Through therapy and support groups, I found the courage to face this trauma and developed the emotional tools and resiliency to openly speak about my experience.
Cancer taught me that I need to be in my body and listen to it; I need to work on myself. After my diagnosis I started to turn the wrenches and grease the gears and give myself routine maintenance, so to speak.
Today, we come together with a fresh slate and a wide-open road before us. We write as a tool to heal and for the gift of sharing our experience.
