Winning an Olympic Gold medal didn’t save me from getting cancer. But thanks to all the years of staying active, caring about good nutrition and working to cultivate a positive and resilient attitude, I had the mental skills and physical strength to get through my cancer treatment and return to my active lifestyle.
Now that I’m a couple years into my survivorship journey, I appreciate every day and am fully committed to keeping up those healthy habits so that I can stay healthy and strong for my family and my way of life. It’s amazing how small good habits of physical activity, putting quality fuel in your body and getting enough rest can really add up to some incredible moments with those you love!
As we focus on breast cancer awareness this month, let’s get out and get active together! Know your body, celebrate what it CAN do, and if you find something, get it checked!
