You Might Not be Cured, But You Can be Healed – My Conversation with Cissy White

I recorded this episode in mid-September and am just releasing it now (my cancer/treatment got in the way).

Cissy White is a writer, speaker and advocate all things trauma. She is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, physical abuse and abandonment and has created a platform to raise awareness of the devastating lingering impacts resulting in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

A few years ago, Cissy was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer – something we share in common. She has taken her passion for advocacy for healing the shame that comes with our trauma and talks about how she is harnessing this as she moves through treatment for cancer. She admitted that it feels easier to live with the PTSD from cancer than it does from childhood sexual abuse. What I most appreciate about Cissy is her optimism in the power of healing in the midst of struggle.
