This woman >> SHE is strength. 🦊
Sandra @thefightingfox is my friend + often one of the first people that comes to mind when I use my tagline “this is strength.” Sandra is a badass @CrossFit athlete + Level 1 trainer. She’s a mother to two young girls, a wife, a soul who is both vulnerable + gets down to business all at the same time. She’s a volunteer, your friendly neighborhood @krogerco pharmacist, a friend, + a proud member of several supportive communities—shout out to @streetparking b/c I know she loves you! ❤️🔑
Sandra is a fundraiser for @barbellsforboobs , is a proud #Canadian 🇨🇦, + is a huge supporter of people living big, bold, healthy, + active lives. 💪🏼
One more thing, Sandra has cancer. 💕
She is the Fighting Fox because everyday she fights the physical, emotional, & mental battle that her breast cancer has served up. She’s had multiple surgeries, a double mastectomy, chemo, radiation, + whole bunch of other types of treatments/drugs.
Sandra is a young survivor—a part of a sometimes-forgotten or under-supported population of breast cancer fighters who were diagnosed under the age of 35. She’s struggled with her identity as both athlete + person fighting cancer. She’s struggled still being a parent of young kids + person fighting cancer. She’s struggled with finding a community that gets the issues of the 30-something person AND fighting cancer.
Because fighters shouldn’t have to fight alone (no matter age, gender, battle), Sandra is committed to offering local, in-person support. I’m so proud + excited to share her brainchild: 🦊The Fighting Fox Survivor Series. 🦊
1️⃣ Her first small group event is on Sunday 4/28: CrossFit & Cancer is hosted by @crossfit_frostbite + participants will learn about the importance of fitness through a cancer diagnosis.
2️⃣ Her second event on May 5 is hosted by @starseedyogis and will focus on building a mindfulness + meditation practice to work through anxiety AND support better sleep habits during a cancer diagnosis. 💤🧘🏻♀️
DM Sandra or me for more info + SIGN UP for either or both at the link in bio. •••
