Thriving with Breast Cancer!

This is what thriving with cancer looks like. I started my battle in the spring of 2021, as a personal branding expert, I have a few best practices, and one of them is: Don’t talk about it while you’re going through it. Why?Because hindsight is 20/20.You’ll have a lot more to share on the other side, which will help your reputation. Plus, protecting your mental health is key when you’re battling the "Big C."  When 5 months had passed, 2 treatment teams failed to diagnose me properly, and I escalated from stage 1b to stage 3 breast cancer, it was Marija Plodinec and Julie Hakim whom I called on to help me find a path forward. I am forever grateful. I would like to thank my colleagues, Emily Reiser, Thomas Luby, Angela Wilkins, and Joanna Nathan for trusting me to get the job done while embarking on my health journey.The silver lining, my patient journey enriches the work I do every day with healthcare innovators. So, the next time you see me, I’ll be rocking my post-chemo hair, and officially taking my wig “Shirley” off.  The wig is hiding who I am and who I am becoming.#CancerSurvivor #PatientJourney #PersonalBrandingExpert #EmotionalIntelligence #TexasMedicalCenter #BreastCancer
