Good mornin' The last few weeks have been wild, amazing and chaotic. I'm tired a lot of the times but getting more sleep, the week before chemo is always the best but I'm still anxious, I feel better, but just going to get knocked down again. I'm really not looking forward to the 5 days after chemo, my muscles hurt, my minds a mess, it's more difficult each time but over all this has been a lot easier for me than other, I feel guilt for that but also so thankful. •GOOD NEWS, I booked my first paid modeling job with my new look, so excited to show you guys when it's all finished• I'm excited for cooler weather, except my noggin is already freezing, time for new beanies! HAVE A GREAT DAY! 🖤 #nofilter #chemo #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #baldmodel #freelancemodel #cancersucks #makingthebestofit #stage4cancer #lamodels #californiamodel #nomakeup #powerofpositivity #modelswithcancer

When I came across Philecia’s story, I knew I had to talk to her.

At age 29, on an ordinary day, she found a marble-sized lump in her left breast. By the time she turned 30, she went from living life as a model in Los Angeles to a woman about to take on Stage 4 breast cancer and the fight of her life.



Philecia grew up in Utah as an athletic, fun-loving girl with a big family and the big heart that comes with it. Before her diagnosis, she spent her weekends being physically active, embracing her youth, the outdoors, and a fun and adventurous lifestyle that involved riding on the back of her boyfriend’s Harley.



Listen to episode #002 to be educated, humbled and incredibly inspired by someone who makes mustering up the will to fight seem nearly effortless.
