1. Tonya Baillargeon - An Inspiring Victory Over Cancer Debbie Spector Weisman 28:20

Three of the most devasting words a person can hear: You have cancer. Immediately your life changes and you’re filled with a mind full of emotions that are impossible to process. The first reaction is just to shut down.

     But there is life after a cancer diagnosis, and the way you handle it can literally be the difference between life and death. My guest on this episode knows this all too well. Tonya Baillaregeon was given a tiny chance of surviving her cancer. Yet not only did she beat it—she was called to help others create their own pathways to getting through this devastating disease. Her story of triumph is not only inspiring but a reminder of the power we have within us. Tonya tells us about:

·      How she went from cancer victim to cancer survivor and thriver

·      The power of mindset in facing cancer

·      How to build your support system

·      An alternative approach to wellness – what works and what doesn’t

·      Dealing with physical and emotional changes

·      Knowing when to seek medical help

·      Why ‘being yourself’ can be a detriment to your healing

     Tonya reminds us that we never have to face a life-threatening situation alone. If you or a loved one is facing any kind of health issue, don’t miss this powerful episode of Dream Power Radio.
     In March 2007, Tonya received a diagnosis of uterine Carso-sarcoma and embarked on a deeply personal journey from diagnosis to survivorship, embracing her path with dignity and grace. She took control of her mindset, built a strong support team, and integrated alternative wellness modalities alongside her medical treatment, discovering the transformative power of transitioning from mere survival to thriving. Tonya's own experiences have inspired her to share her knowledge and guide others through the challenges of a devastating diagnosis. Recognizing the need for resources during her own cancer journey, she has created the very support system she wished she had.

     Additionally, she serves as the Founder and Director of Circle Haven Coven, a spiritual group practicing holistic spirituality. Leveraging her more than 40 years of spiritual practices, Tonya skillfully helps individuals harmonize their mind, body, and spirit, leading them towards a place of inner balance.

     When not working with her clients online, Tonya can be found traveling and exploring new destinations with her beloved husband. They enjoy walking their dogs, immersing themselves in captivating books, and delving into diverse culinary experiences that allow them to appreciate different cultures. Tonya's passions extend to her love for dogs, relishing walks on the beach, and the excitement of exploration.

     Tonya is on a mission to help a million people revolutionize their cancer journey, Moving them from mere survival to full-on thriving.
