Anne Crook, breast cancer thriver, tells her story of being diagnosed with breast cancer, from the shock of this diagnosis, given she has been in the health industry for over 20 years, and though she ate well and lived a “clean life” to the realization that the lump was her body talking to her, sending her a message that she needed to do things differently. Her healing journey has led her to understand the importance of regular detoxing and to the dream of offering retreats to hold space and help other women heal from this life-changing diagnosis.
