I am Waheeda,
shamelessly and fearlessly living and loving in times of cancer.
On December 7th 2021 I was diagnosed with stage 4 Uterine Leiomyosarcoma with lung metastases. Palliative. On December 8th I started on an integrative path. January 11th I had a full hysterectomy and March 1st I started chemotherapy. Two weeks later I began losing my hair. Now I boldly flaunt my baldness. What I already know?
You are in charge of your life and the way you battle your disease. That means educating and loving yourself enough to make tough and value-driven decisions. Study, speak up and find the right support. Do what’s good for you. The ones who really love you will hold space. Broaden your perspective and be courageous my friend!
Read my daily stories and reflections on how I rise and fall, enjoy my recipes as I nourish my body,
enrich your knowledge with my findings, research and more.
