In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, one media influencer is sharing her health journey and helping SurTHRIVERS all over the world.
Lyndsay Levingston Christian launched SurTHRIVER, a breast cancer awareness and wellness platform created to inform, inspire and empower women across the nation through content, collaboration and conversation.
Through the platform, she hosts a podcast series via Facebook and YouTube channels that focuses on educating women (and men!) about every aspect of fighting and surviving the c-word.
The journalism educator and former New York City-New Jersey news anchor, penned a vulnerable narrative for Essence.com offering a glimpse into her journey and the ‘media break’ she took while offering them a testimony and smile.
“A lot of people didn’t know what I was going through, and I was okay with that. I didn’t look like what I was going through because of God’s grace. When faced with a chronic illness, sharing can be emotionally draining. It caused me to relive that phone call over and over. I wasn’t ready to bare my soul, until now,” Christian said.
