November guest editor Yael Cohen Braun is on the front lines of the fight against cancer, giving the disease a run for its money with her empowering and life-changing organization, FCancer. As CEO and co-founder of FCancer (which arose when her own life was turned upside down by her mother’s cancer diagnosis), Yael educates people around the globe about cancer prevention. That keeps health at the forefront of her mind, 24/7. Not only is she an advocate for the wellness of others – she’s a pro at taking care of herself so that she can come to the aid of men and women worldwide. Yael advocates that when it comes to cancer, no one experience is alike. She’s determined to make sure both caretakers and cancer patients have the tools they need to battle this disease in a way that feels authentic and true to their own journey.
No matter how busy life gets, Yael is always sure to keep herself is fueled and focused while she courageously leads her cancer-f*cking troops into battle. From green juice and glass bottles to hikes and healthy restaurant tips, we love how simple Yael keeps things when it comes to her own self care and wellness.
