Michelle Whitlock


As both a woman AND a survivor of a preventable cancer I feel the need to spread the word to anyone who will listen, using my experiences as a tool to help others.


How I Lost My Uterus and Found My Voice: A Memoir of Love, Hope, and Empowerment is my book, my memoir, which helps me educate and inspire other women to be successful at life, despite what is thrown at them…


My conviction that no other woman should suffer from this preventable disease prompted me to start sharing my story through my memoir and my frequent guest appearances.


At just twenty-six, I was diagnosed with HPV-induced cervical cancer, which changed my life. After several back-and-forth battles, radical treatment decisions and more sleepless nights than I could possibly count, I am cancer-free.
