Today’s video is a bit different…and it’s very timely. First, let me back up a bit. You probably already know that I’ve been friends with Michele Gross from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps for several years now.
Over the past year, we have worked very closely together on a few projects (ehem! Stamp of Approval!) and have gotten to be very fond friends.
During this time, I’ve been lucky to have a “front row seat” to her cancer journey and watch this brave and inspiring woman take charge of her health and inspire others to do the same.
I remember the day she messaged me that she found a lump. From that day, she has shown nothing but a positive and brave attitude with gratitude towards her local news channel that encourages viewers to do a buddy check every 9th of the month.
Because of that, Michele is starting a campaign to remind all of us to check ourselves and remind our friends to check on the 17th of every month (the 17th is the day she found her lump). You can read all about her journey HERE - it’s an amazing and inspiring story!
Michele’s surgery was this morning and she made me chuckle…last night she was “complaining” about no wine…no food…no showers…and the radioactive stuff they were going to inject her with. She joked that she was going to come home a cranky, hungry, dirty surf. Hahaha! I love her outlook…
I’m thrilled to report that her surgery went better than expected! She is home and resting and counting down the hours until she can shower. My favorite quote from her today was:
“I killed cancer, cancer did not kill me. booyah!”
I love this lady.
I wanted YOU to get to know her a bit better…so here is an interview I did with her when we were in NY last month. Enjoy!
Thanks for joining me today and I hope you’ll join in the Calling All Sistahs campaign for self-check on the 17th of every month!
