Who is Nalie?
In July 2013, Natalie Agustin’s life changed. At only 24-years-old, she got diagnosed with breast cancer. As astonished and devastated that she was, she started blogging about her journey at www.nalie.ca as a way to cope but also to keep her family and friends updated and hopefully inspire others in the process.
Little did she know that her blog views would reach 15,000 in the first day only, that she would get a huge following and make several media appearances, or that she would receive hundreds of messages from strangers saying she has inspired them.
Nalie, as her friends call her, never thought she would be a breast cancer fighter, bald on the day of her twenty-fifth birthday. But through this experience, she says she has found herself and has accomplished more than she could have imagined. This page is a tribute to her fight and some of the highlights of her journey so far, which include raising more than $ 27,000 for breast cancer research at the CIBC Run for The Cure event.
