In this episode:

  • How to be helpful to loved ones who are DEEPLY Suffering

  • What NOT to say to those dealing with a severe illness/battle we can't understand 

  • The importance of health, wellness & self-awareness

  • Signs & symptoms of ovarian cancer 

I am beyond excited that you are here today to hear from our guest, Brittany Crosby.

Brittany is an incredible human who is an online entrepreneur & stage 3 ovarian cancer slayer that I am just OBSESSED with.

I have wanted to have her on the podcast since day one and decided the time was NOW because her story is POWERFUL and could literally SAVE someone's LIFE.

I just know it’s going to motivate you to take ACTION in a lot of different ways.

Brittany was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer at 27 years old after a TON of doctors told her that it was something different.

Until doctor number 13, diagnosed her with cancer. I know this episode will be powerful because not only do we talk about her incredible story, but we talk about the importance of health, wellness & self-awareness, how to support someone who is going through something that we may just not understand.

We also use a lot of humor, to keep this very heavy topic a little bit light, but I REALLY think this episode is going to be so impactful.

I can’t wait to hear what you think!

Quotes:

“You never want to hear the word CANCER, but I was like okay, buckle up. What do we do now?”

“Don’t disappear. Just don’t… you don’t know what to say, so you don’t want to say the wrong thing, so you don’t say anything at all. But cancer is so isolating.”

“Saying that you don’t know what to say, is SO powerful.”

“I have had doctors literally look me in the eye and say, I don’t know how you’re doing this, but whatever you’re doing, keep doing it. This is the only reason you are able to endure all of this.”

“One day, something is going to happen and you’re going to realize how short and fragile life really is.”
