The Gift of Wisdom This Holiday Season

This year has put a lot of things on pause (travel, school, big family gatherings). But 2020 hasn’t stopped my passion for bringing those of you living with breast cancer inspiration—whether it be in the form of this column or messages of hope on Instagram. So I thought it fitting, in this holiday month, to bestow upon y’all the “Gift of Breast Cancer Wisdom.” It’s a compilation of responses I got from other breast cancer survivors when I asked them about moving…

Holiday Gift Guide – Cancer Warrior Edition

This holiday gift guide is for all my cancer warriors out there. Every cancer diagnosis is different. Every chemo journey will be different.

Remember,…

The Top Things That Helped Me Through Radiation Therapy

I didn’t worry about radiation therapy during my breast cancer journey. I worried about a lot of things with breast cancer: the actual diagnosis, getting chemo, and losing all of my hair. In fact, I was so busy and distracted reading everything I could about chemo that I hardly spent any time learning about the effects of radiation—which is maybe why I was never that nervous about radiation therapy. I wanted to write this piece because in hindsight, there are…

Celebrating One Year as a Breast Cancer Survivor

Where did the time go? Oh right—surgery, chemo, radiation, moving houses, raising kids, COVID. Here’s what I’ve learned, 12 months on. Survivor: A person who copes well with difficulties in life. A breast cancer survivor? I don’t think a woman diagnosed with the disease ever fully expects to hear those words—or can even imagine when she’ll actually feel like a survivor instead of a fighter. But a person who copes well with difficulties in their life, well, that is something…

The Day I Heard My Child Say “Mom Has Cancer.”

I wanted to shield my family from the disease, but soon found out that when it comes to kids, honesty is (almost) always the best policy. When you become a mother, you worry about keeping your children safe from getting hurt. You focus on making sure they’re eating their fruits and vegetables. You stress out about their nap times. What you don’t anticipate when you become a mother is having to explain to your child that you have cancer. Being…

Get Your Closet Ready For Summer

Summer is arguably the best season to experiment with different looks and color palettes. It’s the time where wearing loud, vibrant prints is valid — encouraged and expected even — with casual, laidback outfits just as acceptable. But even though the season calls for creativity, you also should be wary about the type of pieces you’ll be sporting. The increasing temperatures mean you have to pick items that will not cause you to perspire more than you should, all while…

Chemo Took My Hair. Here’s What I Did

Chemo took my hair, but here’s what I did. If you’re new here, my name is Sabrina Skiles, I have breast cancer and I just finished chemo. Wow. I can’t believe I get to write that. I honestly couldn’t imagine saying that when I heard I needed chemo almost seven months ago. The end just seemed so far away. But here I am, as surreal as it seems. Something else you should know: Like a lot of people, I lost…
