Sheryl Crow shares her thoughts of post-cancer living.
Sheryl Crow: rock ’n’ roller, mom, early-detection cancer screening advocate. The last description she couldn’t imagine before her own breast cancer diagnosis. Like so many of us, she thought of herself as healthy. Now that she’s been cancer-free for a decade, Crow is on a mission to help other women, who often put themselves at the bottom of their to-do list, take care of their health and thrive. Crow is working on a new album with Stevie Nicks, Willie Nelson and others and made time to talk with us about her day-to-day stress relievers, how she gets her kids to eat healthy food and her passion for wellness.
