When I was 21, I was the caretaker for a woman who was diagnosed with terminal cancer - I cleaned the house, took her daughter to daycare, did the little things. At a time when most of my friends were going to bars and being care-free, I was talking to her about her treatment side-effects and her chemo, and listened intently to all that she was experiencing including balancing family life. I remember thinking I wanted to create a spa where people could rest, recover after their treatments, and then come home to their lives.
20 years later, my dad got the diagnosis. Cancer. When I got the call, I was travelling abroad with my husband, in the midst of a journey letting my nervous system unwire, recovering from adrenal fatigue and rejuvenating my body and emotional health after neglecting it from the pressures of my corporate job for so many years. I returned home and became my dad’s cancer coach, caregiver and advocate, the spoke in the wheel of everything. It was 3 months of go, go, go. But also of learning to trust my intuition.
