After her diagnosis with metastatic breast cancer at only 18 years old, Brittney decided to find the things in life that brought her joy, because she knew that facing a forever diagnosis had the potential to bring her down, and she is passionate about squeezing every last drop out of life. Brittney doesn’t show the highlight reels of her life, but rather her day-to-day conscious choice to be happy, appreciating the smallest details, down to her cup of coffee in the mornings. By taking moments of anxiety and turning them into an opportunity to smile—all while admitting the pain and being fully present—Brittney is turning her health journey into an inspirational message of hope for others.

“Even in these sad moments, I still want to have my inner peace, and for my journey, that was the huge thing for me, was finding that inner peace admits the pain. And I want to still feel grateful for my life, despite what I may be going through at the moment.” —Brittney Beadle
“I think it's so important to wake up and go to sleep every day happy that you are alive. And to me, that is what living your best life is—it's all about having that inner peace and choosing to be happy despite everything.” —Brittney Beadle
“When I'm in these times where I feel stuck and there's no way out, I kind of just look for the simple things that will bring me joy and kind of remind me, Okay, I'm feeling like this, but this is temporary. I'm going to get past this eventually.” —Brittney Beadle
