Currently, one in two people will unfortunately suffer from some form of cancer in their lives. Today on The Best Version Of You show, I am joined by one of my coaching mentees, the amazing Danielle McDermott. Danielle shares her story to show that there really is light at the end of the tunnel and that you really can enjoy a fulfilled future.
Danielle, originally from Liverpool in England and mother to a beautiful daughter was unfortunately diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2018. She then went on to have a mastectomy, losing one of her breasts before enduring five months of intense chemotherapy. To everyone's joy, and excitement, Danielle was given the 'All Clear' by her specialists later that year.
On today's show Danielle shares her story of how she felt in the early stages of her cancer and her treatment. What steps she took to create a robust mindset and to take the positives out of everything. What methods she used to explain what she was going through to her beautiful girl and in typical fashion, what she did to lift up everyone around her.
As her coach it's been immense to work with her and see her go through this fantastic journey of personal growth. While she was in hospital having chemotherapy, she became hooked on the hit TV series 'SAS Who Dares Wins'. She admired the athleticism and tenacity of the women on there and wanted some of the same, so her goal was set. To train as hard as possible and to apply and compete on the TV show as a contestant for the 2020 series, and that's exactly what we will do.
Danielle's message shows you that your mindset really is the key to the best life and even in the darkest of times, if you can take positives out of every situation you can move forward in a much better place and she shares all of this in her new book being release in spring 2020 - Bald, Brave and Bloody Beautiful. A book not to be missed!
