FCM: So, you wrote a book " Sexy After Breast Cancer" Please tell your inspiration behind this book

Jocelyn: Yes! I was inspired to share my journey, as someone who is a breast cancer thriver, in hopes of helping other women battling. I had the advantage of assembling an exert team, including both Western and Eastern medicine doctors, therapists, acupuncturists, yoga teachers and a plethora of other spiritual leaders. So, you could say I took one for the team and am sharing what I found worked the best in my healing!

FCM: What Breast Cancer Support Organizations do you support? Why are they important to you ?

Jocelyn: I support Susan G Komen, as a breast cancer community leader and recently donated my time to shooting a video for them. It is important to me that so much awareness is being brought to breast cancer, so  that we can better manage this disease and hopefully both prevent and cure more cases going forward.
