While Nalie was in LA visiting, we set aside some time to make a video discussing misconceptions about stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. It’s a topic we have discussed covering for some time, yet it was a difficult topic for the both of us to talk about. We weighed the pros and cons and decided that breaking the ice and acknowledging the lack of support for women with MBC was really important and needed to be talked about. So together we created this video with the hopes of providing information to educate people about what it really means to have MBC and to provide support and inspiration to others in our shoes.
We hope this provides some clarification, breaks down barriers, but most importantly inspires and empowers other Thrivers.
With Nothing But Love,

I have been diagnosed with stage 4 mbc recently in June 2019 and I am 33 years old so yeah it’s not for older women. I have 2 kids and was diagnosed when I was pregnant with my second one so my journey has been a little different and difficult. Right now I don’t even have the strength to walk so hoping to get up. You girls inspire me and give me hope but I know I have a long way to go.
Sending love to you on your journey. Trust and believe that all things are possible and there are many paths to healing.
Thanks for clearing the misconceptions for breast cancer liked it.
I’m new to mbc land, diagnosed in Jan ’19 aged 44, I have bone mets, like you guys my oncologist says we have lots of reason to be positive, lots of treatment options available. I’m on my first line treatment and I’m tolerating it well which is a positive start. I have 4 children my youngest is just 6 yrs old so i too see myself at 80 + i have so much to live for. Thank you for your positivity, I needed it today xx

You beautiful ladies are such an inspiration to all of us. I have been diagnosed with MBC on August 22, 2018. I am 54 year old and I am tying to live my normal life. I still work as a counselor/professor at a community College.
You both gives us such a hope. Whatever God has plan for me I am at peace but in the meantime I am Thriving and living my life.
Thank you and you both and others with MBC are in my prayers everyday.
Love you a lot and stay blessed.

Sending so much love to you and we are both so grateful for your support and prayers!
Love you a lot too!
Wow thanks for the video. I’m new to mbc just finished chemo and on target drugs every 3 weeks forever and daily pill. Loved the hair growing back your fine move on. Hate also being stage4 to start people think you were not doing mammograms or self exams.
Wonderful to find such an uplifting and positive video! You are both such great ambassadors for MBC. You make me want to continue to live large everyday. I’m just one year out and have so many doubts at times, but this has been inspirational. Thank you thank you thank you!!!
Thank you for watching and try to live large everyday! XO
Lovely video! Was happy after watching it to see you girls together and motivating each other! As you know, I’m your fan from the other side of the world! You HAVE to let me know once coming to Europe and we’ll have to do some initiative together here as well!
Lots of hugs from your stage4 sister in The Netherlands, Lianne
Thank you for watching and for the support! I hope to make it there one day. In the meantime lots of love and keep thriving!
You girls are awesome! Friday is my 3 year cancerversary with MBC. You ladies covered the misconceptions perfectly. I would just like to comment how I get tired of being asked when I’ll be able to stop the medication? Ugh, how many time have I said never???? Such a bummer you ladies have had to deal with this so young. I’m 52 and I feel like I’ve been robbed of so much. But you are both Badasses! So keep it up! Loving and thriving in the OC! Take care monica
Thank you for watching and commenting. You too are a badass and Yes!… That is a great misconception. People cant wrap their head around lifelong treatment. I’m hoping and believeing for a cure soon. My intuition tells me we are close and hopefully we can all put the period at the end of the sentence and move on. Until then we just keep thriving. Love to you…
