A few years ago I did an interview with the local news, about my BRCA2 gene, my double mastectomy, and other related preventative surgery that I have been through.
Looking back at the journey, I recall that at the time of making decisions and taking action, it sucked.
All the “why me” thoughts, all the second guessing, and the enormous amount of fear that came with it all.
What I decided to focus on was what it would be like at the other end of this. I decided to remain focused on how going through this is part of my journey and a way that I will be able to help others more. I decided to not dwell, but rather own it and use it to spread my message of Living a Champion Life.
Champions don’t give up when they are scared.
Champions stand up for others and lend a helping hand.
Champions build others up.
And sometimes Champions simply provide an ear to listen.
BRCA2 is part of my story, but it does not define me. I am the Champion of my own life. And I want the same for you.
Was there a time in your life when something happened to you and made you question who you are?
Something that scared you, and you had to choose to fight?
Have you been in a situation that totally sucked at the time, but you made it through and became more than you previously were?
You are a Champion, my friend! Share your story. Not to brag, but to show others that it can be done. Champions can rise up from crappy situations and become more than they ever imagined.
Anyone can be a Champion, sometimes they just need to know that it can be done.
What is your Champion story? .
