“I think you have to be your own advocate and if something doesn’t feel right…you have to go find other options.”
Tina Conrad is a 43 year old woman who was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer when she was 37 years old and had just gotten married. She had a double mastectomy, chemotherapy, radiation and is now on treatment with tamoxifen and Zoladex. She is a 5 year cancer survivor, a runner and a yogi, an incredible writer and so much more. She also started her own podcast called DJBreastCancer which is essentially A Girlfriend’s Guide to Breast Cancer. She shares her journey in hopes of helping others. On today’s episode, we talk about so many important topics including the benefits of movement and exercise during chemotherapy, working during treatment (and identifying who your advocate is), going through menopause at such a young age, how to heal and move forward and finally the incredible breast cancer community on social media.
