About Grace + Ease
Ms. Travis Brady & Grace + Ease
On the last day of my radiation for Stage 3 breast cancer, I knew I wanted to help others like me get through treatment. I realized how.
There was no resource on the web that gave tips on how to get through surgery, chemo and radiation. I decided to share the collective wisdom of my own experience plus what other survivors passed on to me.
In October, Breast Cancer Awareness month, I posted one thing each day that helped me through each phase of treatment. I was honest, open and heartfelt cataloguing the posts making them easier to find.
Grace and Ease was something I continually asked for from friends and family in my treatment updates.
- Grace so that I wouldn’t slide into victimhood or self-pity.
- Ease so that treatment would go smoothly. My daughter was 3. Being a 42-year-old mom with a toddler was hard enough. Adding cancer treatment felt overwhelming.
Both were granted to me. I figured if I needed Grace and Ease, maybe others did too.
Now (2020), I’m over four years out from the start of my treatment surviving and thriving. If you are a survivor and want to share what helped you through treatment, please leave a comment at the end of a blog post. Or, send a message to me on the Connect page. I’d love to hear from you. Others would benefit from your story as well.
“I really wanted to say that your site keeps me sane! Your posts make me actually think I can do this. Thank you really is not even close as to how special your site and words have meant to me…thank you, thank you, thank you. One thousand thank you’s doesn’t even come close.”
