Breast cancer sucks. It’s all consuming. It’s scary, sad, frustrating and all around sucky. Late last year I experienced the “call back” after a routine mammogram that escalated quickly into an MRI, CT scan and partial mastectomy. I have shared my experience with friends, family and strangers and recently had a friend reach out to me because she’s going through something similar. She said it well “Having breast cancer is a full time job.” She was 100% accurate! It’s a full time job for a 💩 boss who is out for you physically and emotionally. Fortunately I had an amazing breast cancer team and (knock on wood) incredible results. However, there was something missing in the whole process that I was fortunate enough to be able to give myself.
Whenever I feel challenged by life, I lean into my physical health and strength. Alkalign is my foundation, my rock, who’s strength has held me up for all of life’s challenges, and this one was no different. Body awareness is critical for doing all the things in life, but I knew it was going to be even more so after surgery when I was restricted in movement and healing. When I was given the clearance to exercise, I jumped back into classes, but with a more tender approach for my body and mobility challenges faced by the fact that my physical body had changed and I needed to give it time to build back up to where I was pre-surgery. I was happy to be back to movement, giving myself appropriate modifications and working my mental health. Alkalign gave me the ONE thing that I felt like I had control over: healthy movement.
Because of my experience, I wanted to partner with fellow instructor, dear friend and Cancer Exercise Trainer, Pauline Goloubef to bring more people the effective, caring and gentle approach I experienced with Alkalign. We knew we could deliver a program to bridge the gap between surgery, doctors/PT’s and regular workout routines.
Whether it’s you, a family member or friend, this program can help you feel empowered during a time when you feel like you have no control over anything. Healthy movement can help you reduce fatigue, improve your quality of life and help circulation that assists with the healing process. I can tell you from experience, it works.
Breast cancer sucks. You’re not alone. Let’s do this together.
