052: How to Grieve Beautifully & Collaborate Generously with HOLLI MARGELL

When cancer strikes

Okay guys get ready for a really intimate conversation this week. Today we have the privilege of hearing a really tender side of Holli Margell's experience as a photographer and specifically as a daughter of someone who died from breast cancer.

A side note: Holli and I don't talk about this really in the episode, but I know it's really timely to mention that providing places for women to get cancer screenings and regular checkups with a doctor is SO important. I am an avid supporter of Planned Parenthood for this very reason. Unfortunately, the accessibility of this service is being threatened with our current political climate. This is why for anyone who leaves a review in iTunes saying how much they appreciate Holli's vulnerability, then I will donate $10 from my personal bank account to Planned Parenthood. So leave a review and I'll donate $10 to ensure cancer screenings are accessible and affordable.

Okay, back to Holli. You guys are going to adore her. She has such a kind a generous spirit which I know comes through in her parenting, and life as a mompreneur and owner of Native Light Photography which is based out of the Seattle area.

Oh and guess what! This is so cool. Remember Nathan Vass? the artist and bus driver we interviewed a couple weeks back in episode 42? Well *he* nominated Holli to appear on Bare Naked Bravery. and if you'll remember *he* was nominated by a fellow BNB listener! This is 4th degree Bravery right here! So freaking cool.

So let's jump into it. Take a deep breath 'cause this one's worth listening up for. Without further ado, I give you Holli Margell.

Brave Take-Aways

Your main Brave-Take Away for today's episode is to do what I mentioned earlier in the episode. For every review you leave in iTunes mentioning this episode, I will donate $10 to Planned Parenthood to ensure cancer screenings are accessible and affordable.

Your secondary Brave-Take Away is to get yourself screened. Make an appointment with a doctor to make sure you've got the preventative measures taken care of. I know that's not a really sexy homework assignment, but this is the stuff that makes the world go round. This is how bravery really is. It's not sexy. Sometimes it's covered in sniffles, tears, and tissues and isn't always glamorous.
