Cancer Warrior Kelsey Taveira

Life happens for you. In many circumstances it is extremely hard to understand this. The question of why is an easy one to ask but also one we may never find the answer to unless we answer it for ourselves.


I live my life with positive vibes and always have. When I was diagnosed with brain cancer 2.5 years ago I immediately had to shift my negative thoughts to positivity. I didn’t know why this happened or what would happen but if I kept staying happy and positive I knew it would all just work itself out.

After my recurrence this past November, another brain surgery, a change in my tumor and now undergoing radiation and chemotherapy it is the only way to be, positive. If I can radiate positive vibes during the hardest time of my life then anyone can. If I can offer hope, inspiration, a smile, a laugh or some tough love then I have had a great day and hopefully made someone else’s day better.

I am in this fight but not alone. I am surrounded with my family and friends. But I have also met so many amazing people along this journey that I don’t think I would have had the pleasure to meet if I didn’t have cancer. One of those beautiful souls is Sara Krish and her group of Cancer Warriors. Having a group of women that can fully relate to what I am going through and already know my daily struggles without having to tell them makes it all easier. No one should ever have to be alone during this dark time. There is so much light out there! And if that light means being able to laugh and somehow find humor in the fact our hair is falling out, nausea or so many other things you can only find out in a Warrior Workshop then it makes it all that much better.

Every morning wake up, take a deep breathe, realize you are lucky to have taken that breathe and be alive, think of your positive thought for the day and live that positivity throughout the day. Have a goal in mind and hit that goal. I promise if you live a life of positive vibes it will shine out to the world and you will reach others without even knowing it half the time!
