"In the afterglow of my celebration, I suddenly felt guilty again. Whether it was for wanting to cut my hair while so many are just happy to have ANY; for being cancer-free while so many of my survivor sisters still struggle; or for my own mother and boyfriend who had to put their lives on hold to take care of me during cancer, the guilt lingers long after treatment ends."
If you have ever been diagnosed with cancer, and you feel like I do- chances are you are trying to repair a relationship with your body, a body that you feel has betrayed or abandoned you.

So, how do I rebuild a stronger, more confident house after cancer has marched in and burned it to the ground? I'll share with you the foundation that I'm laying to rebuild my own body confidence.
