It is estimated that 26,900 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019*
Welcome to High Heal Diaries, created by three-time cancer survivor Natalie Wilson. A personal diary may include a person’s experiences and/or thoughts or feelings. A person tells these things to their diary because it won’t judge, talk back, and is unbiased. We as women must be each other’s personal diaries; an open diary where we share our emotional pain and struggle due to whatever knocks we have received in life, without fear of judgment or ridicule. Natalie believes that by the mere nature of being brought into this world a female, we naturally acquire that female struggle and must rise above it, without the added stigma of shame. We all have a story to tell, and one person’s struggle and pain is no less than the other’s.
As a three-time breast cancer survivor, and now motivational speaker and Certified Coach Practitioner (life coach), Natalie Wilson has gone through the many stages of healing to come to one of the happiest places in her life; the place where she gives back and inspires other women to see that light at the end of the tunnel, and to move it along “SISTA.” Join her and others as they share their inspiring stories of triumph to a more positive, spiritual, and healthier way of being a woman. And if you haven’t gotten to that place yet, following Natalie and others with their High Heal Diaries, will certainly inspire you to get there.
Women have to do what we have to do, pain or no pain, so we may as well do it looking good! Natalie firmly believes that taking pride in how you look on the outside will truly make a difference in how you feel on the inside. “I’ve had sixteen surgeries and within a week or so after each one, no one would ever know what I had just been through…I’d just freshen up, do my hair and throw on a little bit of lipstick, and no one was the wiser unless I shared my story.”
Natalie's message to other cancer patients
“My message to other cancer patients, breast or other, is to be well with the journey God has put them on. Once you are content with your life‘s journey, be it easy or difficult, you will get to the end of that journey and be at a better place to help yourself and others. No matter how hard your days may be, the pain will not last forever. I am a firm believer that God only gives you as much as you can handle.
I urge people that are going through treatment or recovery, to get involved with other patients that are going through the same thing so that they know that they are not alone.
I also believe in giving back, as so many people have given their time and to me. Currently I have a cause where I help women that are going through breast cancer treatment and that are suffering a slight financial hardship, by offering them financial support with utilities, medical expenses, transportation to treatment, children’s activities, or just simply a day at the spa to take their mind off of what they were dealing with even just for a day.”
