Tell us about yourself
I moved to Chandler in early November 2009. I get to LIVE with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer. On Feb. 3, 2004, had my left breast, 31 positive lymph nodes removed. Had lots of chemo and radiation. Was told I had 20% chance to survive 5 years. One year later, the cancer had spread to lymph nodes in my neck. Had surgery at that time, however, did not have recommended chemo. On Feb. 3, 2010, I will celebrate 6 years of survival. I would be so honored if I could participate in the free yoga classes.

Dear Karen -
Yes I am a cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in late 2008. Cancer has touched my family way too many times. My father is also a thyroid cancer survivor and my 76 year old mother just successfully completed chemo/radiation for breast cancer. Unfortunately we are not all survivors as I did lose my brother at the age of 21 to Hodgkins. That is why my yoga practice is a celebration of my life and of my spirit. What inspires me to practice now is my increasing awareness of the fragility and shortness of life itself. I now take the preciousness of every moment to a new level.

Greetings Jean and thank you! I did complete the application for the Joyful Yoga Studio in Chandler, Arizona. I have a very good reputation as a motivational speaker and have spoken to many groups about "surviving & faith". If I ever can be of assistance, do not heistate to contact me. You would not be disappointed! thanks again

Dear Karen,
Welcome to YB! You can fill out a request form under "For Survivors" at the top of the page. And, if there are studios in your area, then you will be contacted. If you have a studio in mind, give them the information about YB and encourage them to sign on! You are a survivor - tell a studio they would be honored to have you! Blessings, Jean
