Hi, I’m Nikki from ChoosingDifferently.com and today I want to talk to you about my family history of cancer so you can understand why this topic is so important to me.
So back when I was maybe about 10 years old my maternal aunt, my mother’s sister, had breast cancer.
I remember at the time her talking about it and she even showed us where she’d had her breast removed and her prosthetic breast.
It was kind of weird and interesting but it didn’t really sink in.
But then over the years more people in my family have been affected by cancer.
My maternal grandmother died of breast cancer, my maternal grandfather had prostate cancer, managed to fight it off but then recently it returned and he died recently from prostate cancer.
On my father’s side I have an aunt who died of cancer and my father’s mother, my paternal grandmother, also died of cancer and most recently my mother has been dealing with cancer.
So this is pretty close to home for me and it means that my risk of cancer is pretty high, so it’s really important to me to explore ways that I can both reduce the risk of developing cancer in the first place and have things that I can do to heal my body, to support my body should it ever happen to me.
So that’s a little bit about my family history of cancer and why this topic is so close to home for me.
I hope you found this video useful and I would love a like, a comment, a share on my video.
