"I collapsed in my mom's arms, 'I don't want to die. There is so much more life to be lived.'" What an honor to speak at last night's @first_descents Brooklyn Bash fundraiser. The room was filled with love, laughter, courage, heavy + light hearts, kindness — all with a 90's theme! We raised over 25k + counting 🎉
-
I remember learning about First Descents — I was so energized by the opportunity to connect with other young adult cancer patients + survivors. And what a gift that this experience is offered at no cost. I knew these other young adults would be able to relate to the challenges that come along with being sick in the prime of our lives. And in the summer of 2010, I attended an epic week of white water kayaking in Vail, Colorado. There were 15 of us + most were totally new to kayaking. As we took to the river, we tackled each day with courage — and perhaps a bit of fear! Each day, we grew stronger + it was incredible to see the bond being formed throughout the group. 🙏🏻
-
To me, the ethos of First Descents is community + connection. We have this amazing opportunity to band together to support each other. Life isn’t easy. It is so important for us to have a community to carry us through. We rise by lifting others. 👫

Please continue to share YOUR story; you will help someone — I 💯 guarantee it. 💥 #OutLivingIt

💥I am energized to share that on SUN 9/30, I will be sweating it out in my sports bra on a spin bike in support of positive body image at @wedaretobare benefitting @movemeant. It's an honor to ride in this event for the 4th year — the founder, Jenny Gaither, is a super inspiring human. ✨
-
This spring, I jumped over another life hurdle. From a high (we're pregnant!) to low (emergency surgery for an ectopic pregnancy) — I essentially stumbled + knocked the hurdle over, but hey, I am human. Over the past 4 months, I've danced with my emotions on how I feel about our loss + my body. I still don't feel back to pre-pregnancy — and, as a fitness instructor, I hold space for others. There have been many mornings that have been a real challenge to peel myself out from under the covers. But I know what's waiting for me on the other side. My students. The opportunity to inspire others. The opportunity to move my OWN body to slowly regain my strength. I will say that my mental strength has truly carried me through. I keep moving forward — no matter what. I’d ADORE your support — a small (or large!) donation 💰 would be so deeply appreciated (link in bio) 🙏🏻

It was the summer of 2014. An idea sparkled through my brain: I'd like to teach fitness to inspire others to lead their best lives. That Fall, started my Barre teacher training with @exhalespa — I was accepted into their full program + decided to leave my full-time job to pursue fitness. Chi Chi Life was born! A beautiful blend of my passions: fitness, events + fundraising, corporate wellness + cancer advocacy — the best is yet to come! 💃🏻

⚡️Today is #WorldLymphomaAwarenessDay — When I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma at the age of 23, I was totally sidelined. After 6 months of chemo, I was in remission + determined to come back stronger, training for my first half marathon with #TeamInTraining for @llsnyc. During race weekend, I felt the lump above my collarbone come back. The cancer had returned — with vengeance.
-
⚡️I froze my 24 year old eggs. I endured more treatment — Chemo, Stem Cell Collection, Radiation, High Dose Chemo + Stem Cell Transplant. I left work for 6 months + was in the hospital for 6 weeks.
-
⚡️Fitness changed my life. I've gone on to train for 7 half marathons + 2 marathons — fundraising for @first_descents + @fredsteammskcc @sloankettering — as well as lead a 22-person 5-bike team for @cycleforsurvival. Giving back is who I am. It's ingrained in my being. We all have the power to make a difference.
-
⚡️Had I not been sick in my 20's — I would not be on this path. I embrace this crazy windy road of life. Each year, another brick of gratitude is put down.
-
⚡️I hope your weekend is filled with JOY + LIFE. Feel free to tag someone who may need to hear my story of resilience 💛🙏🏻
