When the Bottom fell out of my World

Being told you have cancer is one of the scariest things you can ever be told.  I know, because I’ve heard the words “You have Cancer” – that was the day, the bottom fell out of my world!

Being diagnosed with cancer 5 years ago shocked me to the core but made me realise that the environment of my body was out of balance and I was being warned that something needed to be done to bring my body back into balance.

What can cause cancer?
Is it the toxicity around us or it is stress-related from a busy lifestyle?  Who knows?
Making choices to reduce the toxicity in your life, starting with the food you eat, targeted organic supplements and only using good quality organic skin care will help. As will keeping your stress levels down and being happy.
The choices I made helped me beat cancer and banish those menopause symptoms and I now live without the fear of it returning.

I didn’t want cancer to beat me and there is no way I want it to come back.

I’m now 4 years into remission and feeling stronger, healthier and more confident with life, having worked hard with various coaches to help me with techniques to stop feeling the fear of it returning.

Now it’s my turn to give back, empowering you to have confidence and positivity whilst you are going through treatment for cancer and beyond. Motivating, supporting and encouraging you on your journey to live your life to the full.

Going through cancer is one of the scariest journeys you can go through. I’ve come out smiling and now I’m here to help you on that journey. I will show you how to get through it easier, happier, stronger and in control, without the feeling of helplessness.

I empower you to keep your confidence, sense of humour and positivity throughout cancer and beyond. After your treatments start to lessen and your appointments are not as often, it’s about year 2 that you start to panic about every little ache and pain and constantly panic that the cancer has come back!! It’s a very scary time.

I guide you through to achieve the fabulous feeling of freedom I have and have the feeling of freedom from fear of cancer returning. I run workshops and retreats for health and wellbeing and educating people about the toxicity of this world and all the chemicals in your life and skincare, which is why I use, recommend and sell Tropic Skincare and make up.

Our Key Principles

You are not alone

You don't have to talk

There's no such thing as a silly question

After the initial shock of being told she had breast cancer, Lucy took on her cancer journey head on. She let the doctors deal with the medical side of killing her cancer, and took ownership of her side of the battle: good nutrition, lifestyle changes, stress reduction, and anything else she could do to strengthen her body and mind through the journey. She’s an inspiration when it comes to attitude towards cancer, and is on a mission to help others going through a similar journey.

I have always known Lucy to be a strong, independent woman, but her inner strength truly shone through when she discovered and dealt with living with cancer. The initial impact was such a shock, but Lucy would not allow herself to crumble and die. No, she stood strong and proud and tackled it head-on. Sure she had bad days, it was my job to make her laugh on those, but really in the face of what is a terrifying illness, I was amazed at her skills to learn all she could to keep her health, both physically and mentally as strong as it could be. Don’t tell her, but I couldn’t be more proud of her if I tried. What a woman!

Illnesses do not come upon us out of the blue. They are developed from small daily sins against Nature. When enough sins have accumulated, illness will suddenly appear
