We had a gorgeous fall day, and I spent much of the afternoon with my friend Brenda Bunbury-Carlson. I am so blessed to have met her through our day job, but even more so that we can share our individual consultant businesses. She is my sponsor, but has not yet had a chance to teach a class on her own. Her day is coming next weekend at her daughter's home. If you live near Whitefish Bay and would like to learn more about why we are so passionate about the products, please let me know.
Today she practiced and we went over her talk, making sure important facts are shared and not so pertinent info cut out to keep the presentation well under an hour. She will do great. As a cancer survivor her "I" story is important. She is concerned about the products she uses - the last thing she needs is to have more estrogen added to her body, which would put herself at risk for recurrence. Mineral oil is an estrogen receptor. This is not a good thing for any woman, but is a huge concern for a cancer survivor.
I just ordered more books by Dr. John Lee - both discuss hormone imbalance for cancer survivors as well as for women already in the life chapter of menopause. October is breast cancer awareness month, and it is my goal to have studied Dr. Lee's book for cancer survivors before the month ends.
Brenda and myself, like many Independent consultants, are doing a fundraiser through October, and will be donating $10 to the Susan G Komen Foundation for breast cancer research. These sets will make awesome Christmas gifts, and are a very special gift for a breast cancer survivor. Every woman deserves to be pampered, and especially those who have fought the fight - and WON! I am blessed to have a number of survivors in my life... Betty, Meri, Brenda. I pray that their earthly journey does not end because of cancer, For Brenda and I, it is our mission to educate the women in our lives about the products they are using daily in their lives. Education allows for wise choices, and wise choices allow for health to flourish. May you all have a desire to seek the knowledge that can benefit you from the inside out.
