Hi, I'm Dr. Sabrina Nichole Crouch, host of the podcast "F*ck Being Stuck". I was inspired by my own journey to healing chronic pain using meditation. This podcast spotlights the unrelenting women who went from managing to mastering their health challenges, and the badass alternative practitioners who are changing the way we heal.
In this episode of the podcast, Dr. Sabrina sits down with Fitz Kohler, a remarkable individual who has overcome cancer and shares her inspiring journey. Fitz emphasizes the importance of regular check-ups and self-examinations for early detection and encourages listeners to proactively take care of their health. She recounts her personal experience of finding a lump after a clean mammogram and the subsequent diagnosis of cancer that had already spread. Fitz underwent intense treatment, including months of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, with the unwavering support of her family. She highlights the significance of having a strong support system and encourages listeners to reach out to those going through cancer, offering practical help and assistance.
Despite her diagnosis, Fitz made the decision to continue her career as a professional race announcer and keynote speaker, not letting cancer dampen her passion. She shares how being able to pursue her career and be there for her children during special moments helped her survive. The mental strength and resilience she had developed from previous experiences of failure and rejection played a significant role in her ability to persevere. Fitz also emphasizes the importance of allowing oneself to feel the emotions that come with cancer diagnosis but continuing to move forward in spite of the fear.
Fitz describes herself as noisy, bossy, and compelling. Fitz Koehler of Fitzness.com is the author of multiple books, including My Noisy Cancer Comeback, Your Healthy Cancer Comeback: Sick to Strong and Healthy Cancer Comeback Journal, a busy keynote speaker, a professional race announcer, and a fitness expert. Her company Fitzness International has a global reach, and she’s conquered every avenue of mass media to help people live better and longer.
