Inspirational Women - One Cancer Survivor On What She Learnt From Extreme Self-Isolation

As recent events have highlighted, none of us know exactly what is around the corner and our lives can change in an instant. That is why I wanted to share with you the inspirational story of Lauren Murrell and how, after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer at the age just 23, she endured nine months of extreme self-isolation.

In her recent interview with Vogue, Lauren reflects on her own experiences and shares her coping mechanisms from a time where she had to undergo chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant, to how she eventually came out the other side to create her own organic skin care company By Sarah London, with her sister, Sarah.

In the article, Lauren comments: “Isolation is hard – especially when it is as extreme as the measures I endured. But I think there is a real power in treating it like a gift, to take the time to pause, reflect and think about your path forward.” I think this is a great way to look at the situation we all find ourselves in at present, and I hope Lauren’s story can provide you with some inspiration and comfort that we can all come out of this in a better place than before.
