I am a two-time breast cancer survivor and an Ironman (IM) triathlete. My IM mind has been my strength and has seen me through my life’s darkest challenge of breast cancer. Like the lotus flower, I have emerged from beneath the muddy waters to unfurl my strength and all my beauty. Whether facing a grueling IM race or the horror of having breast cancer, undeniably, I am a Girl on Fire and a force to be reckoned with.
I am here to remind myself and to be an example to others that it’s not enough to just be physically active and leading a healthy life style. Screenings are useful tools to help detect and manage those conditions which are out of our control. Please be proactive and get your yearly screenings with the same fervor that you take care of your body.
I have finally returned to training and will raise funds for breast cancer research in conjunction with an IM race participation. Early detection and treatment saved my life so I am partnering with Prevent Cancer Foundation to globally increase awareness and inspire support for their vision – “Stop Cancer Before It Starts!”. Please join me in my journey and consider a donation in support of my fundraising efforts.
