The podcast dedicated to the mental and emotional healing after breast cancer treatments have ended. How to get out of survival mode and into a fully lived life. Because Survival is Insufficient
Acceptance is Not Resignation
Women often struggle with the idea of accepting the fact that a cancer recurrence is a possibility. They push back on it because they think that accepting this idea means that they will be resigned. But this isn't true. Listen in to understand the difference.

Interview with Kathleen Brazie Part 2
In this episode we talk about the cancer experience when you don't have a spouse, significant other, children or parents as the foundation of your support network and the surprising places that support can come from.
Interview with Kathleen Brazie Part 1
In this first-ever interview episode, I speak with Kathleen Brazie. The conversation was so good, we had to make it 2 episodes. In this first episode we talk about her philosophy of working with her body rather than fighting cancer, being an empowered partner on your treatment team, and the idea of taking on a new form or identity after treatments end.
Kathleen is the founder of Purple Boots Creative with the mission of empowering change through advocacy and movement.

Returning to Work After Breast Cancer
Going back to work after breast cancer can cause worries of overwhelm. In this episode I talk about what one of the Survival is Insufficient: Breast Cancer Recovery members did to prepare herself after we coached on this topic in a live Q&A call.
Knowing Ahead of Time
Women often tell me that they just wish they knew what their future held. Will the cancer come back? When? Will it be metastatic? But a very difficult situation I'm going through right now is showing me that knowing ahead of time comes with its own burden. One I'm not sure is worth the benefits.
The One Without a Title
In this impromptu, unscripted episode, I talk about a series of events that left me feeling a lot of negative emotions, and then how I worked through them. This is a real life example of how I use the work I teach breast cancer survivors in situations beyond breast cancer.
