My Blog

Like many people, my life has been a blend of challenges, successes, growth and learning. After & Before is a blog for cancer survivors, caregivers and those looking for inspiration, tools and resources to move from surviving to thriving.

After losing my late husband to cancer when he was only 37 years old, I had no desire or energy to go on with my life.  It took years for me to create my own recovery process developed out of my own personal life experiences and my training as a certified professional coach.

Becoming a coach for cancer survivors, caregivers and those recovering from loss allowed me to turn tragedy into triumph.  I write about my current life ~ the After ~ and sometimes, I reach back into the past and write about Before because it does inform who I am today.

Through my blog I share life lessons, coaching tips and tools you can apply right now in your own life and inspiration to help you connect with your life purpose and passion.  My mission is to guide others to find the path to leading an extraordinary life no matter what circumstances they are facing because, frankly, ordinary is not good enough.  My goal is to help anyone stuck in survival mode to thrive again through my revolutionary i-Thrive! System.

To be sure you don’t miss a single post, you can follow me on Networked Blogs.

    Hi Tambre, I want to first thank you for what you’re doing here for cancer survivors and caregivers. It’s a wonderful thing that you’re doing, and I commend you for the direction you’re taking your life. I am very sorry to hear about your husband; I certainly can relate to your story somewhat; watching my grandmother fight cancer and finally losing the battle in 2005 and then having to sing my mother home just last year in 2010.

    It was a very hard pill for me to swallow, being that they were both my biggest fans in my own life. At first, I took both losses really hard; I simply did not want to say goodbye, and I thought that cancer had taken away my right to say goodbye to them both.

    The lesson that I later learned was that through every lost there lies a lesson. If we listen to that inner voice, and to what it is trying to tell us; we’ll come out on the other side better than we were. I’d like to think that it’s our loved ones walking beside us helping us through our lives where they see we need it most.

    I’m much better than I was last year this time, because like you, I found a way to help other’s through my pain.

    Thank you so much for what you’re doing here. I cannot express to you how much respect I have for you because of it.

    I wish you all the best in your present and future endeavors. Stay motivated.

    Your friend,
