Boobs or no Boobs, Listen!
Being diagnosed with invasive Breast Cancer on my 40th birthday was not my favorite surprise, but given the circumstances, being gifted this resource was. Beth and Sarah walk listeners through every aspect of this journey with intention, honesty, grace, and encouragement. Early on, I would take 30-min walks to help process my diagnosis, and I would listen to each episode one by one. I could feel myself exhale and re-center. I am through the beginning storm and still feel myself aexcited for the next episode to appear. Keep creating content that is meaningful, relevant, and filled with hope!
Helpful to so many!
As a 45 year old deciding on a proactive double mastectomy, I felt isolated. The support from medical centers was lacking. The Besties with Breasties Podcast helped me find valuable information about the surgery and post-op recovery. Super thankful for the guidance and happy to be on the other side!
Besties with Breasties
I can’t say just how important this is. I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in 2021 and quickly discovered there are a lot of emotions that come with a cancer diagnosis and very few resources. The highs and lows are like a roller coaster. Fear, doubt, uncertainty comes in waves. Sometimes overwhelmingly. And if I’m being totally honest no one can understand it all except someone who has been there. I didn’t know if I would find any comfort since my diagnosis was not breast cancer. But I found it. So thankful for these women and there fearlessness when sharing their stories. We are not walking alone!
