We love this quote by the poet Hafiz: "I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in the darkness, the astonishing light of your own being." We wish the same to everyone in the #beBRCAware community!
Does talcum powder cause cancer? A legal and scientific battle rages

Since then some studies have shown that there is an elevated risk in women who use talc in their genital area for a long period of time. Other studies have not shown a connection.
In 2006, the International Agency for Research in Cancer, which falls under the World Health Organization, decided to classify the use of talc in the genital area as "possibly carcinogenic to humans." In the US, government agencies and medical associations that track what causes cancer believe the topic needs more research to know for sure.

WE DONT NEED CASE STUDIES AND RESEARCH TO KNOW THERE IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM WITH WOMENS REPRODUCTIVE 
Alot of womens health and lives were ruined because of the chemicals contained in these products. Studies have shown that Dioxin, Pesticides, Bleach, Synthetic Materials, Recycled Trash are all contained in most traditional pads and tampons.Reproductive diseases,pain,discomfort, infections, and even death has been experienced by to many women and girls for US to wait on a study 🤯

I’m baaaaack!! It’s been almost 2 months since I’ve walked & I’ve gained 10 lbs back. ☹️ I heard about Thrive’s new patch- Burn- and I ordered it to help me reach my goal of 50 lbs gone by my 40th birthday. I am so excited for it to arrive & I’ll let you know how it goes! So as of today, I have 84 days to lose 23.2 lbs. 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 #exercise #health #healthy #fitness #weightloss #surgeryrecovery #prophylacticmastectomy #brca #brcapositive #brca2positive #brca2 #bebrcaware #new #newyear #goals #walk #walking #treadmill #fibromyalgia #fibro #gettingfitfor40 #geterdone #dothehardthings #endorphins #myfitnesspal #caloriecounting #calorieburning #thrive #burn #newproduct
When I think about being mentally strong it’s usually for those big moments in life but sometimes it’s like today when I need to gather strength just to get out of bed. .
.
I get inside my own head very easily, thinking about how my future is going to shape out, my current health and if I’m truly happy with my life right now. And I’m the sort of person who puts on a ‘strong independent woman’ face to most of the world but inside I’m teaming with emotions. 
I have one friend who I can talk to easily about how how I’m feeling without putting my guard up, but it also gives me anxiety knowing that I’m going to open up that part of me that I push down so easily. .
That’s how I’m feeling today. So not a great start to the day but I’m seeing my friend today and hopefully I can gather that strength, talk through some of my feelings and share a better story tomorrow ❤️

#pathreport #cancer #metastaticbreastcancer “So my final path reports all came in with the final diagnosis of my tumor. 
Biopsy shown:
Invasive Ductal Carcinoma
ER/PR+ HER2-
Grade 3
With the Left Axillary Nodal (lymph node) Metastic Disease 
The final tumor size removed was 1.26cm, that's 85% smaller then it started out before chemo, all of the tissue was removed, and 6 lymph nodes were removed and only one (the original node) was positive with cancerous cells, but had completely shrank to normal size during/after chemo. 
Well if all of that doesn't just slap 👋🏻 you in the face! I'm really effin glad I wasn't afraid or ignored the signs that something was wrong. 
This story would be a much different story. 📖”

I couldn't have said it better myself. Because I knew, I've been treated accordingly right off the bat, and not as if this gene didn't exist. I also knew what to be looking for, and for that I'm grateful.

You might be scared to get tested, but knowing the truth can empower you. #beBRCAware #knowledgeispower #under40 #breastcancer #ovariancancer #brca1positive #survivor
