Karla Olson was 45 years old when she discovered a lump on her breast. While her doctors told her it was nothing to be concerned about, a gut feeling told her otherwise.
She sought out a surgeon who confirmed, to everyone’s surprise, that it was triple positive breast cancer. The first thing that came to her mind was her children.
Hear Karla’s account of her harrowing experience with chemo… and why she made the decision to stop treatment.
Click on the video above to hear Karla’s story, how her focus shifted in order to heal, and why she’s so passionate about spreading the message that cancer is NOT a death sentence.
[Update]: We are so happy to have recently received an update from Karla, a year later, that she has not had a recurrence. She also shared a few words of wisdom for other cancer patients:
I think the number one thing I have done, besides the obvious… health, exercise, diet… I have started to meditate. I have been doing it a year. I have cleared all negative emotions that I feel were trapped in my body over the years. And I am a brand new person. For me, the cancer existed in my “old body”. It’s been life-changing work.
