Keri Chiappino



I’m Dr Keri Chiappino. Chiropractic Neurologist. Certified yoga teacher. Oh, and a breast cancer survivor. Let me tell you my story…. It starts with a lifetime of craving a family of my own. Then there were years undergoing fertility treatments, the hope of adopting a baby, and then the phone call. “You have invasive breast cancer.” Cancer. The big C. The word nobody wants to see, hear or write. And the story gets worse from there. The dreaded BRCA gene made an appearance. Multiple surgeries. Eight rounds of chemo. A year of Herceptin. More medications than I could count. But then when I was finally “done” with the physical part of the disease, I had another battle on my hands. I wanted to FEEL again. I mean, I’d heard the words I’d been dreaming of. “Excellent news, you are in remission and your chance of survival is over 95%.” I left my oncologist that day and expected to feel happy. Elated. But I didn’t. I thought… I just friggin survived breast cancer! Why wasn’t I over the moon? It was all behind me! But was it really? My hair hadn’t grown back to the long locks that I loved. My boobs were not what they were. My ovaries and uterus were gone. I had more scars than I could count. The emotional, spiritual and psychological work became my priority. Hit the fast forward. Look at me now. Three plus years cancer-free, and more than that, I have my happy back. Healing Boobies is the “get your happy back” movement for cancer survivors. By exploring the emotional connection between sickness and health we can clear the emotional traumas and FEEL again, FEEL good, FEEL HAPPY! One day at a time, one step at a time, one breath at a time. YOU can do this…..Love and hugs <3
