In 2003, Kris Carr was diagnosed with a rare and incurable Stage 4 cancer, beginning a fight she would later document in the moving documentary “Crazy Sexy Cancer.” Ten years after her diagnosis, she’s still living with the disease and thriving. In the above video from “Super Soul Sunday,” she reflects on how cancer led her on the most transformational journey of her life.
“Ten years ago the fearful side of myself might have said I wouldn’t be here, because when I was diagnosed with a stage 4 cancer I was told that I had only 10 years to live,” Carr says. “But then there was a side of myself, the fighting side of myself, the loving side of myself, that decided to reject that information and to get busy living.”
Carr says she had to give up thinking, “Until they say I’m perfectly healthy, I am broken.” She says, “I looked around and decided that was a dragon that I would be chasing my entire life if I didn’t change my thinking. Because I may never be healthy on paper, but I am well.”
