Patricia Sanzone: A Position of Strength
Seven years ago, at the age of 42, Patricia Sanzone was diagnosed with breast cancer. A certified yoga therapist in New York, she underwent a rigorous course of treatment that included two breast surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation.
The treatments made her very ill; after each bout of chemo, she had to be hospitalized because her white blood cell count plummeted. Sanzone, whose partner is yoga therapist Andrew Sugerman, experienced those difficult months as a time of deep personal reflection. Sanzone recalls, “My ordeal led me to begin a personal healing journey.”
As fate would have it, her challenge would become, for many others, a ray of light.
