Anything Is Possible: Mina Greenfield

Breast cancer survivor, Mina Greenfield, shares her best tips and advice for keeping your lashes and brows during chemotherapy.

Mina was still in the thick of treatment last year when she shared her breast cancer experience. I’ll never forgot the quote we used for her post. It was “Entertain the maybes” and I believe that philosophy should be applied to everyone’s life – cancer or not. Read on for the advice she’s sharing this year.

GIVE US AN UPDATE ON YOUR HEALTH

I completed chemo in November of 2013. I had a month “off” (I went to NYC with my unimpaired immune system!) and completed radiation on February 21, 2014 (my mother’s birthday!). I’m now on Tamoxifen, but back to my “normal” energy level with a full head of hair.  

WHAT IS YOUR BEST PRESCRIPTION?

Only one? Can I share two?
1. Acupuncture – it helped greatly with the side effects of chemo and radiation.
2. Brian Joseph’s Lash and Brow gel. It’s pricey, but it kept my eyebrows and eyelashes (hanging on by a thread) mostly intact until the end of chemo.  

TELL US SOMETHING AWESOME.

I ran my first 5K two months after completing treatment.
