Girlfriend's Guide to Breast Cancer

DJ BREAST CANCER

A Podcast on Tina's Breast Cancer Journey, a "Girlfriend's Guide" to Breast Cancer.

Tina's story must be told.  She has lived the breast cancer journey both as the survivor and the daughter of one.  Tina knows both sides of the story.  She has been the ears that have heard, the eyes that have watched, and the hand holder.  She too has been the body that has been sick, weak, and worn.  Her soul has come forward with unyielding optimism about her own future and that of her fellow survivors.  Through her experiences, those affected by breast cancer will find inspiration that they too can hope for a promising future that will wipe away the pain of the past, replacing it with joy and gratitude.  Sit back and listen in to her inspirational Podcast debut, DJ Breast Cancer.

Izabela, Breast Cancer Survivor & Adventurer

This week’s guest is Breast Cancer Survivor, Izabela Gardula. Izabela describes cancer as a crazy tornado. Despite testing negative to the BRCA gene, she found herself in the same situation as her sister and aunt. Diagnosed at 33 with Stage 3A Breast Cancer, Izabela describes the importance of a positive attitude. Izabela describes that attitude is half the battle.


Izabela is a force of nature, she doesn‘t sugar coat anything, but always keeps it real. We laughed together about yoga (I have learned to love it, but Izabela stills doesn’t “get it”) and she describes honestly how initially she didn’t think she needed a support group. She quickly realized all the great information at all hours of a day that other survivors quickly can provide. In Facebook groups, she would put a question out and get 100 response, all hours of the day... Does a cancer patient ever really sleep, so many other cancer survivors would provide real-time, amazing tips!


Afterwards, Izabela wanted to give back to the cancer community and her commitment to other survivors with peer counseling along with helping others figure out their bills & financial issues. Izabela is fierce, organized and has a huge heart. She is an advocate for others and provides a great resource for under your rights. https://triagecancer.org/cancerrightslaw
