Fifteen years ago, Joyce O’Brien was running a hedge fund on Wall Street, working 120-hour weeks, and raising an 8 month-old baby girl.
She was living her life in “survival mode.” She was powering through, rushing to work, rushing home, and living the life of the typical burnt-out executive.
Everything changed when she was 33. Her husband suffered a severe and debilitating brain hemorrhage and she was diagnosed with stage-2 breast cancer. Two years later, she was diagnosed with another stage-4 cancer and her husband, stage-3 melanoma. She and her husband had been powering through and succeeding at life, but their bodies had finally sent them a clear sign that they couldn’t keep living in survival mode.
Fifteen years later, Joyce and her family are thriving against all expectations. But she is living an astonishingly different life.
