Universe, what’s good?! Today’s guest is Kristen Carbone of Brilliantly, an organization dedicated to post-mastectomy care.
Thanks to everyone who made the Fearless in Fuchsia Luncheon in Toledo a success! It was such an honor to represent Salvatore Capelli and Sofi Stella as a survivor model. When the numbers come in, we will let you know how much The Victory Center was able to raise for cancer patients. It was an incredibly magical day. Apologies for getting this interview out a week late. Thank you Kristen for showing up and being flexible!
Kristen discusses her unique experience as a Previvor without the BRCA mutation, as well as her motivation behind starting Brilliantly. We are all one diagnosis away from a completely different life, and Kristen found this out after being a Museum Curator before starting Brilliantly.
While discussing the topic of dating, the conversation veers towards what is necessary to date in a healthy manner. It is easy to want to fast-forward to dating after a mastectomy to grab onto some kind of normalcy that disappears after undergoing such an invasive surgery. Not only is Kristen incredibly wise, bringing great tips for dating to the table, she’s also bright as a penny.
