Christy says six years ago, she was sent home for hospice after being diagnosed with terminal cancer. She says that one night while watching Dr. Phil, his advice deeply resonated with her, and she decided it was time to “thrive” and live a life she wanted. 

She says, however, that her change in appearance after cancer has been hard on her. “I would love Robin’s help to empower me, so I can get my life back and gain some self-confidence I’ve lost over the years,” she says.
