Listen as Glynis shares how breast cancer has changed her life.
Breast cancer has absolutely changed my life and it’s changed it for the better. Before I was diagnosed with breast cancer I was working for a Fortune-25 company and I was running a department, had eighty employees, and was basically always at work.
I was the corporate woman, and the time off that I had while I was going through my treatments and surgeries for breast cancer was a real time of reflection for me and I realized that my legacy on life needed to be a little different. You know, I went to college, I got a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree and I thought the corporate world and being promoted and being in that life was what I wanted.
But, when it was all said and done at the end of the day, it was my family that was there for me. It was my husband who had given me shots every night to increase my iron in my blood, and I had to look and say, “You know what, this is not important because the stress that I am constantly under in the corporate world, I believe, was a trigger for my breast cancer.”
And so I started looking at, at the end of the day, if I were to be gone from this earth tomorrow, what would I want my legacy on life to be, and it had nothing to do with that high-powered corporate job that I had. It had everything to do with having no regrets.
And so I basically said okay, now what does that look like? What does that mean to have no regrets? And basically, what it meant to me was living a life fulfilled, being around my husband, my daughter, my family and enjoying day after day after day, and at the end of the day, having no regrets.
