    Rough Passage: Inspiration after Challenges - What Happened? with Lorie

    Rough Passage: Inspiration after Challenges - What Happened? with Lorie

    It has been one heck of a week since the last episode- hence the title Rough Passage. I ended up having an emergency surgery after a routine scan. I know! Not what I was expecting.

    When we face a life challenge, it causes us to act, reflect and reevaluate. It is the small steps that move us back to life as we know it and to experience the growth we can achieve.

    We all have the tools we need to get us through life. Sometimes we don't remember where we left our tools. Sometimes we forget the tools that we have. This past week has been discouraging to say the least, but I also know the value that has come out of it. I know that my story will help someone else understand that no one is immune to life's struggles…me included.

    Skin Cancer Awareness, Pt. 5: Into the Depths- Beauty is Not Just Skin Deep with Bronwyn Davis

    Skin Cancer Awareness, Pt. 5: Into the Depths- Beauty is Not Just Skin Deep with Bronwyn Davis

    I am excited to have today’s guest on my show.  Bronwyn Davis has found her niche as a coach, but not just any coach. She is coaching others with a twist- as a Sun Care Coach (TM)

    I know you are thinking, what is that? Well Bronwyn will be telling us more about that as well as her history with her skin issues and how she was frightened by her pediatrician at the tender age of 12.  Her focus on awareness now shines on skin cancer and skin related conditions.  If you are struggling with confidence and unable to move past old behaviors and inner criticism, Bronwyn is here to teach you how to love yourself and skin once again by going into the depths to realize beauty isn’t just skin deep.

    As someone who has been diagnosed with skin cancer, vitiligo, and rosacea, Bronwyn personally understands the physical, emotional, and mental challenges of being sun sensitive in a sun-worshiping culture.

    Here’s how you can connect with Bronwyn:

    Skin Cancer Awareness, Pt. 3: Dressed to the Nines - Sustainably Sourced and Fashion Forward UPF 50+ Clothing with Christie Covarrubias

    Skin Cancer Awareness, Pt. 3: Dressed to the Nines - Sustainably Sourced and Fashion Forward UPF 50+ Clothing with Christie Covarrubias

    Think of all the times you’ve been out on a sunny day, only to find yourself hours later with a terrible sunburn. The painful, hot feeling of the burn and skin damage may have felt temporary. But what if it wasn’t? Did you know that more than 2 people die of skin cancer in the U.S. every hour and having 5 or more sunburns in your life doubles your risk for melanoma? 

    There are so many ways to stay sun safe, but when it comes to covering your body, the simplest way is with clothing and not just any clothing.

    This leads me to my guest Christie Covarrubius. She is the CEO and co-founder of SUN50 apparel company. Sun50 is a female led sun protection clothing brand on a mission to disrupt the apparel industry and elevate skin cancer awareness. Sun50’s products are made in the USA. They are fashion forward, sustainable, and ethically made, designed and developed by a successful team with over 40+ years of combined experience in the sun protective clothing industry.

Great Content!

So happy to be a new listener here

Reinvention Rebel ,

Beautiful, insightful podcast

What a wonderful, insightful and much needed podcast. I love how Lorie infuses her own cancer journey into the episodes. And I love her guests - they are brave, inspiring and empowered. She shines a light on melanoma and eloquently captures her guests’ cancer journey in moving ways. Looking forward to more listening.

The great thing about this show is you don't feel like you're being trained on how to overcome their obstacles. You don't feel like the guest's are there to tell their story. It feels like friends having conversations about their experiences, it's interesting enough you want to listen in, and you learn something along the way.
