When Pamela found a tiny lump on her breast 19 years ago, she knew something wasn’t right. After making an appointment with her doctor, her diagnosis was confirmed – Pamela had Stage 3 ductal carcinoma in situ.  

What followed was a lumpectomy, five weeks of radiation therapy, and a lifestyle shift. Throughout her recovery, Pamela focussed on improving the little things in her life, like reducing stress and eating well.  

But Pamela knows the whirlwind that is womanhood – between working full-time jobs, and taking their kids to every activity, women are busy trying to be everything to everyone. To Pamela, the impact of stress on the body shouldn’t be underestimated. Her advice? Be a little selfish and take some time for yourself to live a more balanced life.
