Wellness Day

Surround yourself with people who motivate you. No matter their situation, they still find positivity and love for life. 

I just met these two ladies for the first time at a Survivors & Sunrise hike at Friedrich Wilderness Park. A beautiful hiking nature park near the Dominion. 

Maria, the lady behind me, is a 6 time survivor of Ovarian Cancer. I can't imagine the strength it takes to fight through this disease that many times. 

Rae Ann, she not only battled Ovarian Cancer but is currently battling Brain Cancer. She wakes up everyday and continues to have that wonderful smile.

All of us are BRCA positive, which you've heard me talk about before. It's the Breast Cancer genetic mutation that not only makes us at higher risk for Breast Cancer but also Ovarian Cancer. 

Days like this remind me that we each have a story. I've met so many amazing, strong, supportive women in my short 10 month journey with Ovarian Cancer that inspire me to keep pushing every single day. Even on the bad days. 

The hike was beautiful. Meeting these ladies was definitely a blessing. I can't wait to do it again!
