The episode this week is a reshare of the previous episode with Kim Carew, breast cancer survivor and founder of Peace, Love, Tote. Kim shared her story behind the pink ribbon including her treatments. Kim’s personal experience with chemo inspired her to found Peace, Love, Tote, a non-profit organization that provides practical items to newly diagnosed breast cancer chemotherapy patients at no cost.
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.
