Local woman Brigid Stapleton survived a very aggressive breast cancer illness that was diagnosed in 1999 after her youngest child was born. The Clondalkin native was advised to give up her hairdressing salon by doctors which was a very difficult decision. Some time later, one of Brigid’s clients introduced her to a health and wellness business, Brigid commented “one of my clients introduced me to health and wellness and I could not believe the difference in my health after taking the products”. Brigid has travelled the world with her business and provides hope to those suffering or recovering from illness.
