Dating After a Mastectomy with Kristen Carbone | Episode 034

Universe, what’s good?! Today’s guest is Kristen Carbone of Brilliantly, an organization dedicated to post-mastectomy care.

Thanks to everyone who made the Fearless in Fuchsia Luncheon in Toledo a success! It was such an honor to represent Salvatore Capelli and Sofi Stella as a survivor model. When the numbers come in, we will let you know how much The Victory Center was able to raise for cancer patients. It was an incredibly magical day. Apologies for getting this interview out a week late. Thank you Kristen for showing up and being flexible!

Kristen discusses her unique experience as a Previvor without the BRCA mutation, as well as her motivation behind starting Brilliantly. We are all one diagnosis away from a completely different life, and Kristen found this out after being a Museum Curator before starting Brilliantly.

While discussing the topic of dating, the conversation veers towards what is necessary to date in a healthy manner. It is easy to want to fast-forward to dating after a mastectomy to grab onto some kind of normalcy that disappears after undergoing such an invasive surgery. Not only is Kristen incredibly wise, bringing great tips for dating to the table, she’s also bright as a penny.

Tune in as we discuss her invention that is launching in September 2019. If you would like to contact Kristen, you can do so on Instagram, Facebook, and her website.

Financial Navigation with Aimee Hoch | Episode 031

Universe, what’s good?! Today’s guest is Aimee Hoch, MSW of Grand View Health located in Sellersville, Pennsylvania! Aimee is an Oncology Financial Navigator who has been serving in social work for over 14 years. As a non-survivor, she is working each day with patients as they attempt to determine their most affordable and feasible treatment options. Naturally, this conversation veered into a discussion about practical self-care methods anyone can utilize, as stress can be a great deterrent in achieving goals! 

Aimee serves patients early in their diagnoses, which is a fantastic benefit because many decisions have to be made quickly, and having a level-headed, experienced individual in the mix can ease many anxieties involved. If you are listening, please pass on the message that resources are available to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients, and cancer patients alike!  

If you are also looking to step up your self-care game, Aimee was recently interviewed in U Magazine discussing her methods. Between being a mother, Entrepreneur, and full-time Navigator, Aimee works diligently to help others. You can read more on her experience here. You can reach Aimee through FacebookInstagram, or LinkedIn

We are now on YouTube! Aimee dazzles as an on-screen guest, and her smile lights up the room! Thanks, Joe for your hard work with the video production. If you would like to support the podcast, please rate, comment and share!
