6 Week Program:
Making the decision to get tested for the BRCA gene mutation is a challenging decision. There is no experience that compares to finding out that you could be at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer. It constantly haunts you everyday of your life knowing that cancer could take your life.
During this 6-week program you will experience: guidance, honesty, support, and shift your perspective about your health. You will also tap into the true reason behind why you made the decision for heading on your path to preventative surgery. Most importantly you will be clear in what is ahead for you during your personal BRCA journey. You will come out stronger and more passionate about life on the other side with your decision to take your life back. You will feel confident, courageous, certain and empowered with who you truly are as a women and remember that losing your breasts doesn’t make you any less of a women.
You will discover who you truly are deep down and shine brighter than you ever have before. It is hard to see this right now but with myself guiding you through and showing you how to experience these feelings I guarantee you will feel so much lighter, braver, and excited about your whole life ahead.
VIP in Depth 4 Day Intensive:
The experience of a mastectomy is like a roller coaster ride. Some days are great with feelings of ease and confidence. While others are highly emotional with deep grief for losing a huge part of yourself. You spiral through sadness, confusion, scarcity, fear, shock, anger, and not knowing what to expect.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Imagine going into the hospital for your surgery feeling supported, comforted, and able to trust that everything will be ok. Imagine having the support that you always wanted during this process from someone who has been there. Imagine waking up after your surgery and knowing you are alright, everything is ok, and you are completely supported, comforted and have nothing to worry about other than letting yourself rest.
Imagine the peace and serenity you will have being able to lean on me for comfort during the entire process.
During this 4-day Intensive, I will come to you 2 days before your surgery to prepare you both mentally and emotionally for your operation. We will walk through the procedure, as well as what you will need to expect the day of surgery and after.
You will have a clear vision of what to is going to be happening and how you are going to feel. This benefit of this experience is having someone with personal experience by your side to guide you through the surgery on emotional, physical, and spiritual levels.
You also receive the assurance of knowing that you have me to support your needs on the day following your surgery. I know first hand how very overwhelming it is to digest what has really happened to your body immediately following the day after your surgery. You wake up in shock, swollen, sensitive, stiff, and uncomfortable and can’t believe you are officially on the other side of your decision. You realize without your breasts, you will need to come to peace and acceptance for the new you.
I felt very alone even though my totally incredible husband was by my side through the entire process. Even with him beside me, it wasn’t the same because he didn’t understand the complexity and totality of what I had experienced. I was very grateful to have him there for support, but I remember thinking how transformative and relieving it would’ve been to have someone with me that had already been through it. I remember looking into the mirror at the new me feeling shock at what was looking back at me.
The grieving of your breasts is a challenge but it needs to be done. Once you emerge on the other side of it, you will feel like the courageous, empowering, strong women that you are. And you will know that you can do anything you set your mind to.
In addition to supporting you through your experience, I also speak with your caregivers and family members to let them know what they should expect and how to best comfort and help you during your healing.
The assurance I provide to you regarding what is to come, the surgery and the recovery process afterwards is priceless especially when you aren’t going through it all alone and have the guidance that you need from someone that has already been through the journey. Having the feeling of someone with you that resonates how you’re feeling means so much. I wish I would have had someone by my side that I could have related with during the course of my BRCA preparation, surgery, and aftermath.
