In 2017 and while living in London with her husband, Brooke Long (Spotlight: Warrior, Issue 4) was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer. After numerous rounds of chemotherapy, she was placed in remission. However, less than two years later, Brooke received devastating news: her cancer returned. She was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic breast cancer.
Rather than accept a first opinion, Brooke and her husband found a radical new method of treatment using ibrance under the direction of its creator. No longer subject to the debilitating side effects of traditional chemotherapy, Brooke has been able to create what she calls “a healing environment” for her mind and her body.
