Show Notes

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we hear the story of another amazing survivor, Rori Zura. She shares how her family history of cancer lead her to be a fierce advocate for her health and shares her perspective on the role of fitness in her treatment and recovery journey.

Rori Zura currently lives in Commack, NY with her amazing husband and 2 Frenchie furbabies. She is 35 years old, an avid athlete, and just finished her battle against Breast Cancer. She's always been an active person, her mom used to say that when she was a baby, she learned to run before she could even crawl - she has been on the go ever since.

After graduating from high school, she ventured out to the wild wild west and attended Arizona State University with the intention of graduating in the design field. Rori ended up graduating with a BA of Design Studies and came back to New York during the 2009 recession. She then jumped from job titles within the hotel industry for 10 years before getting back into Design - right before the pandemic hit.

Rori ended up being let go from her graphic design position, only to be diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer shortly after.

August 17th, 2020 (the day before her 2nd wedding anniversary) she was officially diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer.
