Tags: Other Side of Sick
Sometimes, something comes into your life and you don’t get how big it is. My friend, Michelle Malavet, had this big idea. What if you could take a cancer diagnosis and move through to the other side of it where you might still have cancer, but cancer doesn’t have you? What if you could have a rich fulfilling life AND be sick?
That was a really ground breaking idea for me. I’ve never dealt with a major health issue, so I couldn’t wrap my little red head around the idea. Then I looked at my life and realized that I’m constantly limited by the circumstances of my life. For a long time, being fat was defining factor in my life. Because I was fat, I couldn’t do and be things. So if it was possible to get to the other side of being sick, what would my life look like to get to the other side of being fat, where I wasn’t fat, I just wasn’t at a healthy weight yet?
So Michele asked if I would get in the game and make this book something that could fundamentally shift people’s lives. I of course said yes. I mean really, how do you say no to that?? I am profoundly honored to be a part of Cancerland and the Other Side of Sick.
If you’re dealing with cancer, get this book. It’s not what you expect. If you know someone dealing with cancer, get them this book. It’s not what you expect either.
