Chantal was the picture of perfect health, a jet-setting yogi who traveled the world preaching the importance of holistic living when suddenly, her entire universe is jolted in an unimaginable direction. While giving birth to her son, labor takes on a new meaning as a daunting lump exposes itself on her neck, quite literally, between contractions. She is diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma a mere two weeks after her son's arrival. At only 28 years old, she is now simultaneously catapulted into the world of parenthood and pathology, and is forced to navigate the challenges of new motherhood as a cancer patient.

The next year presents a pendulum of events: cuddles and chemotherapy, nursery rhymes and nausea. She loses her hair, her identity and the very life she had worked so hard to create. Cancer engulfs her world much like a wildfire, destroying her dreams and forcing her to question who she is and why she is here; propelling her on a quest for true health and happiness.

After the treatments end, she goes into remission, but her story is far from over. Now the real healing begins. Questioning her marriage, motherhood and the purpose of life, she embarks on a journey to restore her health and sanity. She discovers that wellbeing is not about drinking green juice, maintaining a perfect relationship, or mastering complicated yoga poses. Rather, she comes to understand that the vitality and joy she so deeply seeks comes from embracing her wild humanity, restoring the sacred feminine, and embodying who she really is.

Through her captivating tales of travel, love and triumph, Chantal shares practical wisdom to cultivate courage, freedom and light-heartedness in the face of life's challenges. She invites you to see your difficulties as perfectly calibrated challenges designed for you to shine more brightly, and inspires you to ignite your Wildfire Within.
