A bit about yourself: I’m a music-loving civil engineer! I changed a lot of things in my life after being through the ordeal of breast cancer. I quit my job and moved into a cabin in Arvika to study music production, and I’m now back in Stockholm. I met Johanna at the hospital when we both got treated for cancer and we decided to start our podcast about breast cancer Bröstcancerpodden!

Life motto: Nothing’s impossible.

What Breast Cancer means to you? Of course, it was devastating learning that I was sick, but it gave me a lot of time for self-reflection. I came out on the other side stronger and more confident in myself. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about cancer and death. It becomes a part of your life, but it helps me to stay present in the now. Today, I do what I want to – it’s my life and truly anything can happen any day, any time.

A bit about yourself? I’m a retoucher who’s into food and hunting. Once I was cancer-free, I got married and got a dog, and since then I’ve been living my best life with amazing dinners with my friends.
I have a cabin with no running water or electricity and just love going there during the weekends – to leave the stress in the city and enjoy life.

“Every cloud has a silver lining.”

What Breast Cancer means to you? I’ve been cancer-free for 4,5 years. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in my right breast when I was 36. The biggest difference between pre and post-cancer is that now I do the things of which I’ve always said – “yeah sure, that would have been fun to do”. It sounds like such a cliché but it’s something I live by.

Even though this mindset also becomes an everyday occurrence I believe that you have to make the most of your life when you’ve been through something like cancer. It’s like the saying “ingenting ont som inte för någonting gott med sig” (every cloud has a silver lining) -and from this, we started Bröstcancerpodden.

We are donating 15% of our profits of the month of October to Bröstcancerförbundet to fund ongoing research and education. Included in all orders is a Boob Check instruction card explaining how to examine your breast – because Boobs are close to our heart!
