Also we will talk about how we can come together as a community and take better care of ourselves by taking steps together for preventative health measures. Yes - literally walking together! We will talk about what it means to be an LGBT cancer survivor and their special needs vs. the needs of the mainstream cancer survivor population.

Candice Witek is a married Health Coach, breast cancer survivor and mother of 3. Candice owned her own interior design business and life was sailing along until she was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer at age 34.
Having just had her third baby months earlier and with 2 small children also at home, getting cancer turned her world upside down. Candice was determined to take control of her future! In taking back control, she realized that the food she ate, her mental wellness, and exercise were things she could control, when so much was out of control in her fight against cancer.
Candice fought through a double mastectomy, reconstruction, months of chemotherapy and ongoing hormone therapy. During this difficult time, by focusing on healthy eating, mental wellness and exercise to beat cancer, she unintentionally lost weight, improved her health and has never felt or looked better!
This incredible journey led Candice to rethink her career and pursue the world of health coaching in order to help others, particularly women, overcome challenges and acquire good solid health and mental happiness. Candice is currently attending a certification program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and plans to begin seeing clients in the Spring 2015.
Until then, you can support Candice by following her blog and watching her evolve on social media. Follow her blog to enjoy her witty articles and delicious recipes.
