    Women Warriors: Breast Cancer Was Not Their Death Sentence (Part II)

    Women Warriors: Breast Cancer Was Not Their Death Sentence (Part II)

    Women Warriors: Breast Cancer Was Not Their Death Sentence (Part II)
     
    October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We remember and honor all the women who fought and lost and we celebrate the millions who fought and conquered.
     
    Two brave, courageous women with unwavering faith; Ramona Kies and Sima Hovannessian, each share their unique story of their journey battling breast cancer from its inception to treatment, victory and where they are with it today. We celebrate these brave women and aim to raise awareness about breast cancer and stress the importance about education, prevention, screening, early detection and treatments.
     
    According to the World Health Organization, breast cancer became the most common cancer globally as of 2021, accounting for 12% of all new annual cancer cases worldwide.
     
    Today’s episode is for every woman, mother, daughter and friend. Every woman needs to know the facts. And the fact is, when it comes to breast cancer, every woman is at risk.
     
    Breast cancer screenings can save a woman’s life and mammograms along with consistent monthly breast self-exams are the best way to detect breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat. As we bring awareness to this issue, we’re urging women to make time for their health and to get screened regularly.
     
    Ramona and Sima’s stories exemplify the warrior each woman has within. We are victors, not victims. Each and every single one of us has the same unconquerable spirit we see in these two amazing women. Let us always remember and celebrate that spirit.

    Today we hear the story of Deenie Leon Robbins. Deenie suffered for many years from chronic illness. After 7 long years of excruciating pain, fatigue, nausea, convulsions and weakness, Deenie found her healing in colon hydrotherapy and detox. This healing experience caused Deenie to make a promise to herself that she would never let another person go through the same turmoil she had faced. She has dedicated the last 26 years of her life to educating herself and others about holistic wellness and full-body detoxification. Since beginning this journey, she has accumulated thousands of clients from all over the world. 
    Today, Deenie has a thriving practice in Tarzana, California as a Holistic Health Practitioner, I-ACT certified instructor for colon hydrotherapy, and a QRA level 2 Practitioner. Deenie believes all challenges should be met with care, consistency, and knowledge.  Her mission is to educate and empower all about their health, especially women. “Life is very short and we only have these bodies and this chance once.”
