This month I caught up with Tara Elmore, fellow breast cancer survivor, creative director and producer, the co-founder of Complex Creatures, a company devoted to breast health for all, and now the leader of The Recreation, an 8-week coaching program for breast cancer survivors that bridges the gap between treatment and survivorship. Whew! What a human. She is warm, funny, and so tapped in to what matters most about surviving not only cancer, but the fragmented nature of contemporary life.
In the interview below, which really feels more like a chat between old friends, Tara tells us about her journey with breast cancer, including the realizations and hurdles it presented, as well as why she decided to start Complex Creatures and now The Recreation. Sometimes when you go looking for the thing you seek and it's nowhere to be found, you have to start it yourself. If you're a cancer survivor, someone who has breasts, or you know someone who has breasts or cancer, you won't want to miss this conversation.
