Connect and Rise with Enna, wife, mother, cervical cancer survivor, Massage Therapist, and Personal Trainer.  Enna shares her journey through cervical cancer and what she learned along the way, including the moment that she realized that she needed to take charge of her health.  Enna also discusses strategies for life that are very relevant as we continue to battle COVID 19 and gives us her perspective on what we can do to be be more active in the pursuit of social justice.  Enna reminds us that true change starts in the home, that we have to educate ourselves, and most importantly that we must always strive to choose empathy.  She has learned through her struggles that we are all so much stronger than we think, not just as individuals, but also as communities and as a nation.  She encourages each of us to evaluate our lives and truly ask not only if we are racially biased, but also if we are actively involved in our community to help change the racial biases of any with whom we come into contact.  Lastly, Enna reminds us that despite all of the hard things we are facing on a daily basis, it is still important to take the time to enjoy life.  It's all about balance.  Don't wait for a gut punch.  Make changes now to be more healthy, to protect the vulnerable and to work for justice... but while you're at it, don't forget to eat the cake too.
