My Blog

In February 2012, I was diagnosed with two cancers of the blood: Stage 4 Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and Stage 3 Multiple Myeloma. 3 years later, in December, 2015, I got breast cancer: Invasive Ductal Carcinoma.
This website, which includes my blog, my podcast, my videos, my book, and other services that I provide, is an attempt to share my journey with you from a place of vulnerability – – my fears, my hopes and the countless blessings along the way. I hope that my experiences will give you the courage and optimism to battle through your own difficulties and challenges.
Like the Mighty Oak Tree whose leaves and branches are constantly tested by the wind, these cancers have tested my strength beyond measure. With your continued prayers and support, and with God’s grace, I will embrace this journey – and all its learnings and blessings – with hope and love.
– Munira
