“I was always good on the ropes 🙏

I had been in training my whole life to handle a crisis, to stay cool and focused, but nothing prepared me for the harrowing ride of a breast cancer diagnosis, bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction surgeries at age 49

It was the practice I studied for years showing up like a loyal best friend to care for me when I needed her most. Today I am hopeful, I am healed, I am here!” ~ Jodi Hurwitz
