Kristen Grider joined me on this week’s episode of Behind the Pink Ribbon to share her story. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2017 at the age of 31 years old following a self-breast exam. Kristen talked about her diagnosis, coming to peace with having breast cancer before the official diagnosis, and her treatments. She shared the struggles she has faced with reconstruction and the decision to explant, which will literally be a weight off of her chest.
My guest on this week’s episode is Cheryl Wohlgemuth from Alberta, Canada. In October 2012, she was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma at the age of 50 after a rollercoaster ride to get a final diagnosis. Cheryl was told she had breast cancer, then told that she didn’t, then told that she did. Cheryl also talks about her family history of breast cancer, her treatment, and the lonely journey through the healing process.
Mimi White is my guest on this week’s episode to share her story behind the pink ribbon. She was diagnosed at the age of 34 with stage 3 invasive ductal carcinoma. She talked about her course of treatments and how through her journey, she was inspired to create the Linkage Beauty Movement in hopes of helping other women to feel beautiful and worthy no matter what.
