    Discovering Your Power, Your Way

    broken image


    Life before 2001 was “normal”. My husband and I worked, raised our family, and lived our lives. Then a routine dental visit and oral cancer screening changed everything!


    My cancer journey began with that simple cancer screening and several loooooooonng years later, I entered remission January 22, 2013. As difficult as it’s been, this extraordinary experience has been more than a journey of health, but a journey to discover my power. Rather than mope away, crying into the wind and wailing, “Why me?” the opposite occurred: I became highly motivated to help others DYP™ and learn to manage the big and small challenges in life.


    Life is still unpredictable and sometimes messy, but with DYP™ and my DYP Emergency Kit™ I am better prepared to face the obstacles ahead of me. With DYP™, you can too!


    My name is Joana Breckner. I am a mom, wife, business owner, three-time oral cancer survivor turned advocate, accidental motivational speaker, and founder of DYP™.

  • Acknowledgements

    I love reading the Acknowledgements in books. It’s a behind the scenes tour of who and what inspired an author to get to the place of publication. I also love acknowledgements because I am huge on gratitude, which is a primary staple to DYP. Gratitude keeps us grounded and provides perspective when we need it the most.


    First and foremost, my acknowledgements and gratitude goes to YOU, my readers, visitors, participants, and audience! Your feedback, encouragement, honesty and support are the power and the fuel which drive my DYP™. I am eternally grateful to the power YOU have given me!
