In 2013 Susana fell extremely ill and was forced to stop working. After months of misdiagnoses and being put on the wrong medication she almost lost her life she ended up in ICU for the second time that year, but this time with little to no hope. Susana found herself drifting in and out of consciousness, she was being kept alive by huge amounts of medical steroids, cortisone and comforted by morphine, after enduring almost every medical test and various intrusive biopsies she was finally correctly diagnosed with a extreme case of systemic lupus which was causing seizures and near organ failure. As a last resort to save her life, doctors put Susana on a course of emergency chemotherapy. If it worked it could take up to 18 to 24 months to get her into remission.
With a deep belief that her life’s work was not yet done, Susana fought, hard. She combined various methods and philosophies of healing techniques as well as diverse therapies and coupled everything with conventional medication and chemotherapy. This resulted in a holistic healing process that managed to get her into remission within just 6 months, baffling doctors and medical professionals.
Susana has been exposed to verbal, physical and sexual abuse, her heart was shattered when she was divorced and ended a 14 years relationship, she experienced a miscarriage, has survived acute depression resulting in an attempted suicide and healed from near death, caused by a life threatening disease. Yet, today she is one of the happiest people you will every meet.
Susana is constantly being asked to share her story and reveal the steps and process she underwent to reclaim her life. For this reason coupled with her vow to the universe, that if she was able to live, that she would make it count, she feels compelled to do what is constantly asked of her and finally tell her tale.
These recent events have created a catalyst that has assisted Susana in realizing her life’s purpose, she deeply believes that she is still alive so that she can make a difference in people’s lives by helping them overcome her three greatest challenges and discover self-love, healing and happiness and by doing so, become the best version of themselves they can be.
