I am a former model who got stage 4 metastatic breast cancer at 30. I survived, and now I provide sexual advice for women going through cancer treatment. AMA!
Hi Reddit, my name is Stefanie LaRue. I am a former model and actress who was diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer when I was barely 30 years old. I was given the dismal prognosis of less than a year to live. That was eight years ago. I have lived through grueling treatments, had a permanent port-o-cath placed in my arm for chemo treatments, and completely changed my lifestyle around incorporating complimentary treatments from diet, supplements and nutrition to juicing. I have learned to live every day in the moment and appreciate being alive. Unfortunately last June they found a recurrence. I went in for surgery 2 months ago, and started treatment again.
Having cancer has changed my life. I am now an activist and spokesperson for many cancer organizations. I have lobbied Congress and I also actively share with other cancer patients how to stay active sexually. In my spare time, I'm an ardent animal advocate rescuing and fostering many wounded, mistreated and special needs dogs. As well I am working on a documentary about my life. "Be An Advocate," is my motto - I live life orgasmically every day.
While I was going through the treatments, my dog got me through some very hard time. I want to take this chance to help raise money for my favorite senior dog rescue Muttville.
EDIT: Going to grab some food. Keep the questions coming!
