If you are tuned in to OWN or checking out this website, it means you are most certainly interested in personal growth and evolution. You want to push yourself to be healthier, feel more connected in a soulful way, and be a change agent in the world. In all of us, I believe, is that impulse to advance and develop skills to be better, happier, more productive human beings. So here's the million-dollar question: How do we do that?

Greetings OWN fans!
It’s been nearly 9 years since I was diagnosed with an incurable, stage IV cancer on Valentine’s Day in 2003. So much has changed since that time. I had no idea how much cancer would shape my life and my work. Because I’ve never had the opportunity to be treated, I made it my mission to learn as much about my body as possible. If I couldn’t be cured, perhaps I still could be healthy. But boy did I have a huge learning curve! I knew nothing about how to eat, manage stress, build my immune system or even how to be kind to myself. Cancer changed all that.
When the first doctor I spoke with suggested I undergo a triple organ transplant (I have tumors in both my lungs and my liver), I knew that wasn’t for me, and I’d have to learn how to be my best advocate and friend. I often tell people that I learned how to become the CEO of me. I hired, I fired, and I ultimately built my Crazy Sexy longevity team – a team of doctors and practitioners that keep me on the wellness track!
Speaking of the title, Crazy Sexy. I bet you’re wondering where I got the name...
