I’m so happy to be able to share this podcast with you. My guest, Vanessa Steil, is someone whose work I admire and who has so much wisdom to share. Vanessa is a graduate of The American University in Washington, D.C. and holds a B.A. in political science, but an unexpected cancer diagnosis changed her life’s trajectory.
At the age of 26, Vanessa was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. This life-altering diagnosis led Vanessa down a new career path as a Board Certified Patient Advocate, health coach, and wellness blogger. Following this passion, Vanessa started her site Living in Steil in 2014 as a way to share her story and offer resources to other patients and survivors.
Vanessa actively promotes thyroid cancer awareness and has been interviewed and featured on numerous media outlets. Her story was included in the cancer survivor book, TOUGH: Women Who Survived Cancer, which was published in September 2019.
Vanessa shares so many valuable insights into life as a cancer survivor and caretaker, but here are some of the ones which resonated the most:
