Meet Analyn. She is many things: Mother, Doula, Amputee, Burlesque performer, PNW Dweller and she has kicked cancers ass. Twice. So often we follow people through their cancer journey, we buy our coloured ribbons, donate to various charities, ride our bikes and say Fuck Cancer. Which are all amazing ways to show support. But, what happens after that last round of chemo? What happens when the hair starts growing back? When the physical scars start to heal?
These stories don’t end when the cancer is conquered. And I’m honoured to be meeting Analyn where she is at now. I hope to shed light on the physical and emotional journey of surviving cancer, and to showcase who she is outside of being the Woman who has lost her leg, breasts, ovaries and fallopian tubes to cancer. How facing her own mortality has shaped her approach to life today and all of the in betweens.
