WHEN HEALTHY WOMEN GET CANCER

Episode: 12

I was a vegan, and a health coach when I developed my cancer. It happens. But, why? Fellow health coach, Christine Walsh Egan, Hay House author of The Healthy Girl’s Guide to Breast Cancer, comes in to talk about her ‘unthinkable one-year journey,’ something I, and too many, can relate to. Cancer stories usually start with some kind of struggle or fight. This story starts with a song. “You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here? You may say to yourself, my God, what have I done?” These words rang true for Christine Egan. Many questions and stories circulate about cancer. Are you telling yourself you are a victim of cancer? Are you worried the cancer will come back? Are you stuck in the role of being sick? Egan made a conscious choice to tell a different story. The Healthy Girl’s Guide to Breast Cancer is part memoir and part guide revealing the all-too-true story of cancer in this country with a healthy twist. Rest assured-this is not a cancer story; it’s a story about health and wellness!

Listen along for a discussion about health, healing from cancer, Primary Food, cancer survival, Integrative Nutrition, plus more, with guest on the mic:

• Christine Walsh Egan, Author of The Healthy Girl’s Guide to Breast Cancer
