The cover of her new book reveals the scars on her stomach that she wears from surviving two different forms of cancer. These scars tell a story. A physical, emotional and transformational story that answers one question: who is Emilee Garfield?
Throughout Emilee's life, she had many answers to this question.
Alone... Ashamed... Unloveable...
Survivor. Mother. Living.
The scars of her past will always be there, but she was able to transform her old answers + perspective of her past as a reason to start living.

IN THIS EPISODE WE TALK ABOUT
After this conversation with Emilee, it brought me back to a big piece that recently has been coming up in my life and that is being present. It's something that I like to bring awareness to in my daily tasks because I can easily get caught up in multi-tasking.
It's impossible for anyone to be present and multi-task. This isn't fair for you, what you're working on or those around you.
So when you are listening to this episode, talking to a friend or finishing up a project, be in the moment. Live in the moment and see how much more you are in-tuned with your mind, body + life.
Emilee has faced cancer twice in her life – once as a child and again at the age of 39. Stage IIIC Ovarian Cancer showed her not only how strong she was, but that she was put here to empower other women to heal, strengthen and fall in love with their bodies in a whole new way.
So, she decided to fight. And she decided to live.
