I sit down with Flo Aderoju for a heartfelt chat about her breast cancer journey. Flo shares her story, from the stark emotions she experienced the moment she received the diagnosis, to the highs and lows of the days and months that followed, and how she got through these periods. Truly, she has birthed purpose through her pain – using her experience, she supports breast cancer patients and survivors through the work of her charity, The Pink Smile (details below).
· We discuss her unwavering decision to promptly start medical treatment following her doctor’s advice while depending on her faith in God for her healing.
Early diagnosis and treatment increase the chances of survival. - “When we change the story, we can start to change the narrative.”
· Having the right support system is key in getting through the cancer journey. Although support may differ depending on a person’s preferences and circumstances, it is very important.
· How she got through the low periods that felt like a siege and the importance of one’s mindset.
· Providing support to people we know… Paraphrased: If you know anyone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, most importantly, that person needs your support and your love, not judgement or pity. This will make a difference in making people feel safe to speak about what they are going through.
