I always dreamed I would be an inspirational speaker; however, I had no idea how I would get there. But when you put your desire out there, believe you me it will be delivered, some way, some how. That was the case for me.
What I have found is that the source of my greatest pain has sprung a desire to share with women traversing the same road: cancer and cancer treatment.
In 2016, I was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer. By early 2018, it had spread to my lungs in twelve places and my doctors told me my case was terminal. I was then, they told me, "stage four metastatic". Entering treatment, I came to death's door...not once, but twice. I literally was not supposed to leave that hospital bed. But by the grace of God, I did and in the dark months that followed, I was delivered again: with a second chance at life. To the astonishment of all my doctors, I was declared cancer-free in November 2018.
With that freeing news, I knew that part of the reason I had been given another chance was so that I could share my story with other women going through the same horrors. And perhaps to give them hope, because I am a walking miracle. Miracles do happen!
In March 2019, my husband and I were exploring new towns when we stumbled on an opportunity to purchase an amazing piece of property in Midcoast Maine: Sea Kiss Point. This three-acre oceanfront estate home was nothing we would have ever considered. But we were inspired to explore it with our dear friend Maya, and as we set foot on the property's shoreline, something miraculous happened in each of us.
I knew that this place would deliver on making possible a big part of what my life's purpose is: to work with women who are struggling with their biggest battle in fighting cancer..
Maya and I are currently developing our curricula and programming for launch in the weeks to come for retreats beginning November 2019.
The categories for our Maine retreats will include: writing retreats, one-on-one healing retreats for women with cancer, day retreats for art therapy and group therapy, and couples retreats for the female cancer patient and her caregiver.
If you are interested in learning more, get in touch and we can talk further.
Blessings to you. I look forward to seeing you soon here in Maine.
