Following a diagnosis of an aggressive form of breast cancer, or Can’t-cer as she calls it, Tiah Tomlin-Harris vowed to God that if she made it through breast cancer, she would help as many women as she could fight and survive breast cancer, particularly Black women, who are disproportionately impacted by this disease.
Tiah believed that no sister should walk this journey alone and founded the My Breast Years Ahead Sisterhood, a sisterhood of women survivors. She also co-founded My Style Matters, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides support, resources, education as well as healthy lifestyle experiences to cancer patients and their loved ones.
In 2019, upon obtaining news of a recurrence, Tiah opted to fight cancer a second time with food and faith. She adopted a whole food plant-based diet, removed products containing toxins or other dangerous chemicals from her home, and added other complementary practices to her daily routine. Tiah believes that by making healthy lifestyle changes, it can help improve one’s quality of life and help with better life outcomes and is now helping others on their quest toward optimal health as a licensed Food for Life Instructor.
