Have you or someone you know been diagnosed with breast cancer or another life changing illness? Today, Dr. Sandra Freiwald is here to talk about her journey with breast cancer as not only a surgeon and patient, but as a mother, and a wife. Her husband had his own battle with a rare cancer a few years prior to her diagnosis.  So Sandy has seen the impact of cancer from different perspectives.  She shares her journey and her views on what makes a good life. This is a story of vulnerability and strength – a story that we can all relate to. The show notes are at thegoodlifecoach.com/029

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s important to recognize that you have to give up some control.  There are things you won’t have the ability to change. 
  • You have to let go and advocate for yourself.  Let people help you and accept the help that people give you. 
  • Recognize that you may feel awful at one particular moment and the next day you may not feel the same way – you might feel better.
  • Learn to go accept and go with the flow.

Sandy’s 3 Best Tips:

  1. Schedule your annual mammograms, colonoscopies as early screenings are key if you are diagnosed for the best chance for an optimal outcome.
  2. Live every day in the present and savor every moment while we are healthy and are able to do what we love to do.
  3. Volunteerism is important.  Fight for other people.
