This week I had the absolute joy and pleasure of interviewing the hilarious Petra O’Hara. I met Petra recently at a business “discovery day” session and I instantly warmed to her infectious personality and knew right away I had to interview her and share her story with you all.
Petra was diagnosed with breast cancer 6 years ago, and describes this episode in her life as “the best thing that’s ever happened to me”. She talks candidly about her frustrations and fears, things that irked her, and how she used her incredible sense of humour to get her through the tough times.
Click on the video above to watch our interview and be inspired by the belief that her cancer experience brought her to: NOTHING is unattainable.
Go ahead and grasp the nettle!
Be the BEST version of your professional self
No one gets into this line of work with selfish ambition and an hollow tin chest! I’ll bet you are a giver to your CORE.
But we’re all human and we all make mistakes, right?
But we’re all human, and it’s easy to slip up and make mistakes. Sometimes we say or do things with no harmful intention whatsoever, but it can leave those we’re working with feeling a little less than special - a little disempowered.

Join the movement
Essential Cancer Education exists to make a difference in the lives of those living through the cancer experience indirectly by assisting cancer professionals in engaging their patients and clients with lasting, positive lifestyle changes to reduce secondary cancer risk.
I believe that through education and increasing public awareness of the impact of our dietary and lifestyle habits on cancer risk, we ALL have the power to reduce cancer incidence. Nearly half of all cancers can be prevented by making positive diet and lifestyle changes. Nearly half!
I can’t do this alone, and I believe I’m part of something bigger. A movement of sorts. And I would LOVE to have you join me in this movement. If you sign up to the mailing list, I’ll keep you posted on news and events that I think might interest you. And I promise not to spam you either! Typically, you can expect to receive one email a week, with some additional surprises now and again when I have something special to share with you that I don’t want you to miss. Sign up here.
