Season of RAD

Hello, my name is Margarita.

In April 2019 I was diagnosed with stage 2 triple-negative breast cancer.  In 2020, soon after I finished treatment, I was introduced and became a member of the Barbells for Boobs RAD program.

When I joined the RAD program I was mentally and emotionally broken.

I had physical limitations due to surgeries and side effects from treatment. I’m so thankful for the RAD program, it has helped me recover from the emotional wounds cancer left behind, it has helped me regain control of my life, believe in myself again, love myself just the way I am right now.

Our mental performance coach and physical performance coach go above and beyond!

They help us move forward and do hard things we didn’t think we could ever do again!  I’ve been able to compete in a CrossFit competition again, and I was able to do the Grace workout Rx and get a PR, I’ve been able to do this after breast cancer!

This program has given me a community of supportive women who have been through what I’ve been through and are willing to help others with their knowledge and experience.  I cannot thank the BFB team enough for this program and all they do for us!

The supportive community and safe space to be vulnerable and share our deepest fears and our biggest successes! And the amazing coaches, Keisha and Johnna! They care deeply for us and have this way of making us feel at peace.
