Absolutely Love this Podcast!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Thank you so much for helping me walk through my Cancer scare. They found a Tumor on my ovary the size of a mango. I was told that it was more than likely Cancer. After bloodwork & a ultra sound & CT scan. After a full hysterectomy & a biopsy, it was found to be a borderline tumor & non Cancerous.
I want to thank you for being here & sharing your stories. It really meant the world to me to be able to laugh & Cry with all of you! You helped walk me through what I thought I would be facing & somehow you made it less scary because your so open & honest. You also helped me better relate to & to be there for friends or anyone with Cancer. You helped me in so many ways I can’t even begin to thank you all!!! ❤️❤️❤️

One of your biggest fans

Listening from Canada

I’m an Irish lady living here in Canada the past 7 years. My brother and his family moved here a year after us and unfortunately we lost his wife Mel to breast cancer last year. Stumbled upon one of your podcasts one evening and it’s been the best mistake I ever made lol. You ladies are amazing and inspirational. I can laugh and cry at each podcast, I love them and look forward to the next one every time. Keep up the great work and the great fight girls xxxx Valerie
