Mariana started treatment for breast cancer the day after our day of pampering. At age 28 with a two-year-old daughter at home, Mariana’s positivity and strength are a true inspiration.
“I had a bilateral mastectomy and I still feel beautiful. I know that I lost something but I gained life. That’s what you have to focus on,” she told us. “This journey is a journey. I call it my little triathlon. It’s a race you have to go through, but take one step at a time. Solve one problem at a time. Don’t try to chew it all at once.”
“Do not be afraid, know that there are many stories of success and you don’t have to go through this alone.”
Jennie, who has a one-and-one-half-year-old daughter, also offered up some words for other women that find themselves battling breast cancer: “Always trust your instinct and what you are feeling in the moment. Believe in yourself to keep moving forward.”
