EPISODE SNEAK PEEK
“When you have a mutation of one of these genes, that’s when you have a significant risk of developing one of those cancers in your lifetime.”
I was so honored to share my full story about the BRCA gene and my decision to get a preventative double mastectomy later this year on my friend Jen Wille’s podcast a few weeks back and I knew I needed to share this conversation with all of you.
This is the most vulnerable I’ve felt all year. And I would not be me if I didn’t share that with you.
So here goes. Dig in, and if you have any questions about anything I talk about, please do not hesitate to reach out. I am always here for you.
Here are a few things we discuss in todays episode:
My one non negotiable to start my day every day
The power (and fear) attached to sharing stories while navigating it in real time
My intention word of 2018 and the irony of it all
The ins and outs of the BRCA gene and how it impacts women vs. men
Navigating the idea of having kids now
The options for reducing your risk when you have the gene
Facing things you’re absolutely terrified of head on
Talking about my BOOBS in detail
The exact surgery I’m getting
