Surviving Breast Cancer With Gretta Monahan
Play • 58 min

Gretta Monahan is the Founder and CEO of Gretta Enterprises, an award winning beauty, spa, and fashion brand. You've likely seen her as the lifestyle expert on shows like The View and The Rachel Ray Show. She's also the superstar mom to Kai and Rio. She has an MBA from Harvard Business School, but nothing could prepare her for the emotional experience of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

In this very special episode, Gretta walks Daphne and Hilaria through her journey that starts with a cancer scare 5 years ago while undergoing in vitro fertilization, then to her yearly mammogram last spring where her cancer was discovered. She eloquently discusses the complex issues of going through IVF while knowing she was at risk. She talks in detail about her journey from diagnosis to treatment, and breast reconstruction. She completed her 12th and final round of chemotherapy the day before this recording and is a proud survivor! Listen to this episode without distraction. Take Gretta's advice, stay vigilant, and be the boss of your own body.
