Spin Instructor's Cancer Journey

Thirty-year-old spin instructor Sara Krish’s women’s intuition was telling her something was seriously wrong. She always took pride in being healthy. She ate organic foods and was an avid fitness coach who aspired to open her own hip-hop yoga and spin studio in Hermosa Beach.

Two years ago, when she heard her doctor utter “the ugly ‘C-word’” she said it was a real kick in the pants. It was hard to accept. She never imagined that she would have to face a battle with cancer as a young adult.

Krish was diagnosed with cervical cancer in July 2012. She first noticed something was wrong in March, so she sought out a gynecologist. At first, the doctor doubted Krish had cancer, but took a few biopsies anyway.
