When Isabelle was only two years old, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Seven years later, she died of multiple brain metastases. Her family is a carrier of BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, responsible for genetic breast cancer. Many of her family members died of this genetic cancer.
On her father’s side, Isabelle’s godmother, uncle, and grandfather died of cardiovascular diseases. All of these deaths occurred before Isabelle was 15 years old. At such a young age, Isabelle was heavily affected by all these illnesses and the loss of too many loved ones. She quickly became aware of the necessity of taking her health into her own hands, knowing her genetics were not favourable.
Despite this, at the age of 30, Isabelle was diagnosed with malignant melanoma, the worst type of skin cancer. Fortunately it was detected in time but with a 20 month old in tow, she was now being monitored for two cancers. In 2007, her sister was diagnosed with the hereditary breast cancer. Only four year later, Isabelle’s daughter was diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
Isabelle has also had to deal with a few family members with mental health issues, so she knows only too well the toll this takes, the financial and human burden that goes along with non-health issues. Because of her personal experiences, she wants to be an actor of change.
Isabelle has 3 amazing children to whom she has transmitted her passion for physical and mental health. She is also caregiver to her ailing father.
Also known as “The tree of Life”, the Baobab is one of the oldest trees on earth. Its longevity is due to its immense resilience to natural disasters such as draught and wildfires.
On top of being resilient, beautiful flowers bloom on the Baobab 3 months a year. They produce a fruit full of nutrients essential for our health. The Baobab was chosen because it represents extreme inner strength, longevity as well as physical and mental health.
