Shay Moraga knows first hand what it is like to fight for life. On February 11th 2016, she was diagnosed with Stage 3 Triple Negative Breast Cancer. In a year long battle she received 20 rounds of chemotherapy went through surgery and did 38 rounds of radiation. Through her days and sometimes her nights she continued to practice the mind, body, connection.. By using breath to movement Shay was still able to practice yoga and meditation to help boost her immune system throughout all of her treatments. It was after she was pronounced cancer free that she knew she had a new purpose in life. To help other women going through treatment, and to help inspire survivors to stay connected with one another. So in 2018 Shay put some ideas together and Shay’s Warriors- Life after cancer was born. For more information visit http://www.shayswarriors.org
