What matters most during our time here on earth and other lessons from Maya Amoils

*Rebroadcast* (originally aired 3/18/20)

Today we are reairing an episode from Season 1 with the beautiful Maya Amoils, who passed away last Tuesday from stage 4 ovarian cancer. This tribute episode is to honor her life and her legacy, and so her friends and family around the world may find comfort in her voice and in her laughter as they grieve her loss.

Maya Amoils had a very romantic mid-20's experience living and working abroad, running half-marathons and building the career of her dreams. That all changed after receiving a phone call that altered the course of her life. At 28, she was diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer. The day before Maya came to do this interview, she completed her 15th round of chemo. She is fighting for her life and throughout her twisted and beautiful journey has discovered a lot about what matters most during our time here on earth. In this raw, vulnerable and beautiful conversation, Maya shares the ways we can show up for people when they need it the most, find compassion for ourselves during times of change, and create more moments of awe and wonder every chance we get.

Maya’s family has set up a fund, “Maya’s Way” to help young cancer patients navigate the journey as she had, utilizing integrative medicine options to help ease the suffering and burden of the many side effects of chemotherapy and surgery and to improve overall well being. All donations to Maya’s Way will help women under 40 do just that.  

*Donations to Maya’s Way from All The Wiser listeners will be matched dollar for dollar. Please email us at [email protected] or DM us @allthewiserpodcast on Instagram to let us know how much you donated and we will double your donation amount.
