Holistic self-care specialist Dana Heller joins Yuliana today to share her inspiring story with listeners. From the life changing doctor’s visit where she found out she had a brain tumor, to her experiences going through multiple surgeries, Dana has come out the other side to help others going through what she did and helping them to feel empowered and healthy once again.

The conversation begins with Dana talking about the event that changed the course of her life - finding out she had a pituitary tumor. She goes on to describe her experience after the first surgery and radiation treatment, the emotions she dealt with knowing she was battling something chronic, and finding meditation and yoga in tough times even when she was let go at work. Dana also details the impact the illness had on her relationships with her parents and how she continues to share her journey and help others that are in the beginning stages of their diagnosis. The episode concludes with Dana sharing the one song that describes her life, ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’, which reinforces her belief that ‘life is too short to just be average and not happy’.

“I think when I found out that I had to have the second surgery, that was when they kind of hit me, the doors came open, and the feelings that I didn't feel at the beginning of it all came out.”

“Trying to find acceptance and surrender on some days is easier than others.”

“I've been through this journey to hopefully be able to help somebody else that is in the beginning stages of whatever's going on.”

“There's something beyond strength to be able to face that and face it in a way where you then just start to live your life managing this part of your life, and not letting it become the whole of your life.”

“Life is too short. And I just want to be happy. Worrying does nothing for me, whatever has happened in the past has happened, and worrying about the past or worrying about the future, and then you're not in the present.”
