Tabitha Cavanagh Finds Her Healing Through Helping Others

Tabitha Cavanagh was diagnosed with Stage III Colon Cancer in January of 2017. She was 31 years old and had a little girl and had just gotten married.

Tabitha completed chemotherapy in July of 2017 and immediately plunged herself into exercise as a way to heal her mind and body. On her Facebook page, Grit to Greatness, she tells her story:

My new beginning all started in January 2017 when I was unexpectedly diagnosed with colon cancer at the young age of 31. I knew, in that moment, my life would never be the same.

Out of nowhere, cancer chose me. I most certainly did not choose it. I was a new mom & newly married. Cancer didn’t care. What I did choose was positivity. I CHOSE to see it as a blessing! I realized, sometimes, beautiful things can blossom in the most unlikely places.

My cancer journey has proven to be the best & worst thing that has ever happened to me. I learned that by creating a stronger mindset, I could get through anything. In finding my GRIT, I discovered my GREAT.

We don’t always get to choose what happens to us. We CAN, however, choose what we do with it.

GRIT TO GREATNESS is designed to be a space where you can come to be inspired to find your GRIT and, ultimately, find your GREAT. All you need to do is show up! Maybe, just maybe, this is where it all begins.

GRIT is about persisting despite your circumstances. GRIT is rising up, facing your mountain and climbing it … GRIT means investing in yourself.

I promise, just on the other side of your GRIT is your GREAT.

…and this, my friends, is how Grit to Greatness was born.

Let’s journey together!

Xoxo,

Tabitha
