Welcome to my website!
I am Jennifer Glass and live near Charlotte, North Carolina. I have three daughters. I am a breast cancer survivor and it's my passion to share with as many people as I can about my experience so that you can learn from the research I have done to become a more healthier version of yourself.
My "Why" goes back to September 2015. I had just turned 40 the month before and was excited for what the next decade would bring. On September 14th as I was getting ready for bed, I found a lump on my breast. I really thought this cannot be happening. I cried myself to sleep that night wondering what the next few days and months would hold. My oldest daughter came in the room to tell me goodnight and noticed I had been crying. She prayed over me and cried with me and agreed she wouldn't tell her younger sisters.
To make a long story short, this was life changing for me. The following day I drove, without an appointment, to my OB-GYN to get a mammogram. They were positive and told me everything would be okay. Two days later, they were telling me different. I, then went for an ultrasound and biopsy on my oldest daughter' s seventeenth birthday. I found out, for sure, on September 23rd I had breast cancer.
This was not supposed to be happening. I was shocked. My mom didn't have BC. I really hate the "C" word by the way. Her sisters nor her aunts had it either, so why did I have it? All of these questions.
I did the genetic testing because I have three girls I needed to know if I had the gene so I would know for them.
I had a double mastectomy on October 28, 2015. After that, there were two more surgeries plus one more. Lots of recovery time and healing to take place.
From the "C" word, I now have more of a "why." My "why" is to build my immune system to be able to fight off bad cells. We all have them. It just depends on whether or not our immune system can fight them off.
My lifestyle looks quite different these days.
I cut sugar, I exercise, I have a trainer, I am almost vegan ( I will eat salmon, turkey, fish), I take vitamins (especially vitamin D3), I do protein shakes with core greens, and for those of you who have stopped by my page, I do Young Living essential oils.
My "why" is I need to live a long, healthy life long past 40. I have a bucket list of items and I am motivated to see my girls grow up. I need them and they need me.
I need these oils. You need these oils.
Not only do I need the oils from Young Living, I can share with you, your friends and your family about products I was using on a day to day basis that were harming me and that could have caused the BC. There's an alternative to the deodorant I used to buy, the dryer sheets I used to use, the makeup I used to wear, the soap I lathered with, the candles I used to burn, the lotion I used to rub on, you name it. Most everything we Americans use have harmful chemicals. I slowly changed to a chemical-free lifestyle.
I would love for you to join me on this journey.
Frankincense, thieves , lemon, peppermint.. these are some of my favorite oils I use daily. Let me show you how to use them too! If you're around my girls very long, they will tell you about how they love the diffuser in their bedroom every night with lavender in it.
Knowledge is power and I feel it is our job to educate ourselves on how to best take care of our bodies. I would love to help you do that. Please reach out, send an email and lets get a conversation started! I look forward to hearing from you.
