The Shocking Diagnosis and the Resilient Reaction

Picture this: it’s 2008, and Zoraida Morales receives news that would change her life forever – a diagnosis of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia.

“I got diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia and I can tell you that the day I got diagnosed, I thought I was going to hit the oncologist because I said, ‘what the f are you talking about?'” Zoraida recalls with a mix of shock and humor. With two young children and what she thought was a picture-perfect life, this news rocked her world. But Zoraida’s journey was just beginning.


Shifting Mindsets and Embracing Change

The initial shock eventually settled, and Zoraida found herself at a crossroads. Determined to take charge of her life, both physically and mentally, she embarked on a journey of self-improvement.

“So I knew that I had to make some changes, but I didn’t know what and I didn’t know how,” she admits. From overhauling her diet to exploring Kundalini yoga and meditation, Zoraida was determined to heal from the inside out.

“Getting that diagnosis, it’s a mindset. You have to acknowledge it, you have to mourn the like, then you have to try to find a new life, right? Curate another lifestyle.”


From Personal Transformation to Empowering Others

As Zoraida’s journey continued, her desire to help others became crystal clear. A pivotal moment arrived when her sister asked for her guidance in helping her daughter, diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. Zoraida’s heartwarming response was a turning point.

“I mean, it’s like your heart starts to pump and for me, my fingers tingle. I’ve noticed that. So I felt all those things and in that moment, I knew what was going to feed my soul and I knew I had to leave finance. I knew that I had to be a cancer coach, but I didn’t know how.”

“There aren’t a lot of cancer coaching schools. There aren’t a lot of cancer coaches, period,” she points out.


The Quest For Holistic Healing and ITN

Emboldened by her passion, Zoraida embarked on a mission to become a Certified Cancer Coach.

Zoraida knew the holistic approach was key, having experienced firsthand the transformative power of treating her mind, body, and soul as a whole. “I learned it the hard way. I knew that to fight cancer, I had to treat the entire Zoraida.” After careful research, Zoraida found her match: ITN. With a focus on holistic healing and empowering others, it was a no-brainer decision.
