The Fearless Girl's Tit Cancer w/ Bif Naked

Spending time with Three Dudes I’d Never Met Before, in some stranger’s apartment in Toronto’s Liberty Village, is nothing new to me. I’m Bif Naked, and I have enjoyed a bit of an adventurous life, as a performer and artist for over twenty-five years. Though I would never generally propose any young lady (or person) meet strangers in strange places, I am A Fearless Girl who just loves to TRUST. (Please note, I do not refer to this “trust” behaviour as “taking a risk” because it is actually about Trusting and Having Faith in Others) Well, as I predicted- I was blown away with the sheer magic of that day. In fact, It will go down in my Personal History Books as one of the Greatest Afternoons Of My Entire Life. My heart is still full, and I will be forever grateful for having met Brian Stever, Taylor MacGillivary, and Jeremie Saunders from Sickboy Podcast, and I am a better person for it.

These guys are Warm, Inspiring, Intelligent, Fun and Funny, and They are breaking new ground with this important podcast. They are a gift to the world. (Please subscribe)

I even wonder if I actually knew these wonderful humans in a past life! I mean, we had very Mirrored hearts and common ideologies. Mutual understanding is hard-to-find shit, and it’s crucial for our emotional and spiritual well-being to make friends that we connect with on deep levels.

 
 

The truth is, I LOVE LIFE and I keep finding more and more reasons to LOVE IT EVEN MORE. Mostly, that’s because of the people I meet. Every person has a story that is about overcoming, moving forward, and real love energy. 

It matters little what my past handed me, like cancer (tit) and the chemo and radiation, surgeries, more surgeries, complications and all the while having to still work (like most of my breast cancer patient buddies) and still take care of our families. But the best education I could have ever received as a volunteer and patient advocate was to BE a patient and I felt blessed to gain this insight, and became a volunteer, discovered I love hospitals, and found my calling (when I wasn’t being a rocker on the stage). I made a record during chemo, and went on tour when I was able, thinking the worst was behind me. But, three years later, my kidney failed (infarct SUCH A FUNNY WORD) and I had to get an operation on my heart while I was awake, that re-wrote my heartbeat and it was The COOLEST Thing EVER! 

And every day I am alive continues to be funny and fun. My heart still works, and my tit is still nice and quiet. Life gives us the weirdest gifts, and I will always be awestruck by how awesome it is. I will forever be the Fearless Girl, but having friends that move, motivate, uplift and inspire me like Brian, Jeremie, and Taylor, make me TRUST more, FEAR less, and LOVE LIFE MORE DEEPLY.

Health is wealth, and Friendships make us even Richer.
