This week, I am joined by Dr. Catalina Lawsin, Lori Marini, and Stephanie McLeod-Estevez to talk about our upcoming virtual retreat series, Thriving…in the face of breast cancer. Starting Saturday, February 6, 2021, this four-part experiential retreat will focus on a different theme each session, integrating The Body, Mind, Spirit and Self. This retreat will create a safe, empowering space to dispel myths, normalize the realities of survivorship and build on your unique strengths to put the pieces back together after breast cancer.
On this episode, Stephanie McLeod-Estevez joined me on the podcast. She is a breast cancer survivor and an art therapist. At the age of 40, Stephanie was diagnosed with stage 3, triple-negative breast cancer. She also has a BRCA2 mutation. Stephanie shared her story behind the pink ribbon. Following the loss of her mother to metastatic breast cancer, Stephanie became an art therapist, which was deeply healing for her as she learned how to support others through creativity.
