Robin Matrai discusses SISU and Inflammatory Breast Cancer
Description of Discussion
SISU- A Finnish concept of strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. Sisu is not momentary courage, but the ability to sustain that courage.
How has Robin applied sisu through the course of her IBC treatment from 2016 to recent developments of brain metastatic activity and stepping into whole brain radiation while still living with inflammatory breast cancer with quality of life and hope.
Meet Robin Matrai, from Calgary, Alberta Canada, whose YES attitude may inspire you, cause you to scratch your head or call you to action. Her perspective of living a life with joy, grit and sisu, despite a double diagnosis of Lupus (1996) and Metastatic Inflammatory Breast Cancer (2016) has not stopped her from successfully parenting, operating her own company, painting, travelling, mentoring, speaking, writing, competing in fitness competitions and so much more.
