She recently advocated in Albany for the removal of Bisphenol-A, an endocrine disruptor used in many of the products we come in contact with on a daily basis and a known factor in the genesis of breast cancer.
Laura has embraced a complementary approach to managing her cancer journey. Nutrition, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, and mindfulness, have continued to help her manage the side effects of twenty three rounds of chemotherapy dealing with breast and ovarian cancer. She is passionate about empowering others with knowledge that enriches and evolves the human mind, body, and soul.
The healing presence of Goddesses and Angels, has been the most important factor in Laura’s evolution.
