In 2017, she was given a devastating breast cancer diagnosis, despite having nearly 15 years experience in the holistic health space. More recently, she has had to face her biggest challenge yet, when only three months ago, it was discovered that her breast cancer has returned. Mina will be sharing her breast cancer journey, the experience of going through a bilateral mastectomy, and the life-altering lessons that have been a springboard to learning about what it means to be a woman living a blessed life.
