Transformational coach, motivational speaker, Author, Founder of URAWARRIOR.COM and two time breast cancer survivor, Bershan has dedicated her life to helping others discover their inner warrior during life’s most difficult journeys. Diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 at just 33 years old, Bershan met her warrior journey and illness head on with a positive spirit. Two years after beating her initial diagnosis, Bershan’s cancer returned. Just two weeks before her wedding, her doctors gave the bleak diagnosis; stage four breast cancer with six to nine months left to live.
Although the warrior within Bershan had been tested before, the warrior inside her rose up to meet the impossible with a spirit of hopeful defiance. She decided then, “This is not my life. I will not die because I was meant for more.” True to her word, Bershan has done much more. She has turned her pain into her purpose. Rather than living in the shadow of a stage four cancer diagnoses, Bershan chose to work tirelessly on her mental, physical and spiritual health and seven years later, she is still cancer free with no evidence of disease.
A driving force in Bershan’s life has been the unshakeable belief that she is meant to help others discover their own inner warrior. In 2011, she became a transformational speaker to women & men worldwide. She then started a unique social networking support site, URAWarrior.com designed to inspire others during the most difficult times in their lives. The site offers a safe and supportive place where they can find connection, comfort, inspiration, and above all, hope for a brighter tomorrow.
Bershan believes that beauty rises up from the ashes of pain and suffering, and wants to help others see possibility when all they see is pain and defeat. Her one on one coaching with business executives, leaders , entrepreneurs and men and women have given her the most satisfaction because everyday she sees how she has changed someone’s life. She has written a book, “URAWARRIOR 365 Ways to Challenge You to a Better Life” to assist others on their journey toward healing and health.
