I had the pleasure of being a guest of Tonya Baillargeon on her YouTube podcast, Power Pantaloons Podcast. Her guests are cancer survivors like myself. During our discussion we talked about the importance of taking care of oneself, asking questions, seeking information, and having access to resources. They highlighted the role of support systems, mindfulness practices, and coaching for cancer patients. They also touched on the importance of maintaining a positive mindset, helping others, and finding strength through faith. Towards the end, they discussed the importance of understanding different types of cancer, monitoring personal health metrics, and the potential challenges of maintaining a healthy diet during treatment.
It was a great experience for me. Not only being able to share my story and the challenges I had faced, but also some of the things I dealt with as a child of cancer patients. The podcast also allowed me to share some of the concepts and ideas I stress as a cancer coach to my clients.
Lastly, I was able to hear Tonya's cancer story. I was so impressed with her attitude of fighting back. In her words, she was "going to kick cancer's ass"! I truly believe with all my heart that fighting a disease like cancer has to start with the correct frame of mind. If you will it, you can do it!!!
