I wanted to share with you my weekend experience at the Young Survival Coalition Summit. I was asked to conduct a 4-hour workshop for young women with stage IV breast cancer. The workshop title I was given was “Building Your Legacy.”
Originally, 92 women registered to attend this workshop, but 54 actually crossed the threshold and came into the conference room and took a seat. I began by asking them how they decided to come, and why they thought others who registered didn’t join us. The answer was consistent: if you come through this conference door and sit down, you are acknowledging that at some point, sooner or later, you will die of breast cancer, and given that acknowledgment, it is important to plan ahead.
