Welcome back to WellSeekers as we finish up our five part series focusing on cancer. In this series, we’ll share inspiring and powerful conversations full of encouragement, hope, wisdom, touching personal stories, and most importantly real world solutions; all from a holistic perspective. We’ll talk with professionals and friends of the show on what it’s like to hear those words “you have cancer”, real life and practical wisdom and solutions for supporting those diagnosed and living with cancer, support for caregivers, and their heroic kind and self-less acts. So join us on this extraordinary series as we want to help you grow and thrive in the face of a cancer diagnosis if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, are living with cancer, know someone dear to you with cancer, or want to prevent this fast growing, deadly and sometimes chronic disease.
On today's show we welcome back Krista Lawrence, a mom, dear friend, fierce advocate and someone living with stage IV Metastatic breast cancer. Krista offers words of wisdom, comfort, and knowledge that comes from her own experiences with this incurable disease. According to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Metastatic Breast Cancer, also known as Stage IV cancer, is not a specific type of breast cancer, but rather the most advanced stage of breast cancer that has spread to other organs in the patient's body. It is also known as the least understood type of cancer and has no cure. We also talk about why we understand so little about this disease, and how through adversity she uncovered her own secret to life.
Getting a cancer diagnosis and living with cancer can make us feel alone, lonely, and isolated. But it doesn’t have to! Join us today on WellSeekers with Lucia for an inspiring and uplifting conversation you won’t want to miss, that reminds us of the power of knowing there are others who are experiencing what you’re going through in that moment, and that you are not alone.
