We all have our own stories and victories to celebrate and share.
I was given the prestigious honor to share mine in two different public venues. One was on TV. CBS 11 and Medical City Dallas teamed up to highlight women who have surpassed a women’s cancer. My story aired the last week of February and the first week of March 2013 on the 5am and 5pm News on CBS 11.
Here’s a link. It is a quick minute. Please watch and repost! Getting this to go viral will continue to create more awareness! The more people I can educate, empower, and inspire to make healthy lifestyle choices, the more worthwhile my journey is!
The next video is on the Komen Greater Fort Worth Channel.
In the following video, I share more of my story. It gives critical details that were edited out of the others. Please set aside nine minutes to learn more about my journey, and my thoughts on staying cancer-free for life!

My Modeling Debut!
What a wonderful event! Cancer Survivors took to the cat walk to raise funds for a great cause: Cuisine For Healing, a non-profit organization which provides nutritious meals for cancer patients. I was one of the models and had a blast! I got up on stage, walked the runway, shook my hips, and cheered in celebration of life!
My Story Hits The News Again!
Co-Owner of Fort Worth Chiropractic Clinic Beats Breast Cancer, Inspires Others to be Healthy
FORT WORTH, Texas, April 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nancy Michlin, who owns Back to Health Family Chiropractic with her husband, Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Chris Michlin, is using her successful battle against breast cancer to inspire others to prevent illness or thrive in spite of it. Michlin, Co-Owner, Marketing/Patient Education Director, and Office Manager for Back to Health Family Chiropractic, is also a Certified Health Coach.
She draws on her own health challenges to empower others to take control of their personal well-being. Michlin’s story has been featured on CBS 11 News as well as the Medical City Dallas’s Next Chapter and the Susan G. Komen Fort Worth websites. Her three videos can be viewed on the media page of her blog: https://nancymichlin.com/media/
Nancy Michlin did not set out to become a cancer activist, but she quickly became one after being diagnosed with breast cancer, surviving two separate mastectomies and battling against Pseudomonas, a serious infection contracted during her first mastectomy which caused four additional surgeries.
Today, Michlin is writing a book about her journey and working to educate, inspire, and empower others about disease prevention and whole body health and wellness. She has recently completed coursework to become a Certified Health Coach.
“Preventing disease is far easier than curing it,” said Michlin. “My mission is to educate and empower others to make healthy life choices, so they can prevent disease or triumph and flourish in spite of it. If I can help someone avoid this journey or hold her hand while she walks it, my expedition was worthwhile.”
Michlin received her diagnosis following a routine mammogram. The ductal carcinoma diagnosis necessitated a single mastectomy. Following the mastectomy, the post-surgical pathology report showed invasive lobular carcinoma, a “stealth” cancer that was not seen on any of the pre-surgery imaging. Not knowing if her right breast was cancer-free, Michlin’s doctors recommended an additional mastectomy.
Michlin is now cancer free; although she continues to have higher than desirable cancer stem cell count in her blood work.
“I am focused on whole body health,” says Michlin. “I exercise five to seven days each week, eat cancer-fighting foods, take Tamoxifen every day, get Vitamin C and Aloe Vera IVs weekly, take supplements, and practice stress reduction techniques.”
Michlin says that she overcame her diagnosis through inner strength. She also credits her husband, Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Chris Michlin, and her surgical team, Dr. Alison Laidley and Dr. Patrick Hodges, for helping her get to the other side of the mountain range.
“I thought I was living a healthy lifestyle,” says Michlin. “After my cancer diagnosis, I completely transformed my life, which has helped me to become a happier, healthier, and stronger person.”
Michlin works with her husband at their Fort Worth chiropractic clinic, Back to Health Family Chiropractic, where she educates patients on the pillars on good health.
