RHONY Star and Creator of URaWarrior Mental Health Resource App Bershan Shaw Covers the Spring Issue of Charge Up Magazine
By: Charge Up Campaign
The Spring 2023 issue features a cover interview with The Warrior Coach Bershan Shaw - two time cancer survivor, life coach, mental health advocate and tech creator. Created to be a resource and source of inspiration for individuals and families impacted by cancer, Charge Up Magazine, a quarterly publication, released its inaugural issue February 4, 2023 in honor of World Cancer Day. Each issue features interviews and contributing articles that speak to mental health, survivor and warrior resources, caregiver support and more.
In this issue, Bershan recalls how her diagnosis, and moreover, being told that she only had months to live, motivated her to become a warrior in every aspect of the word. She shares, "Doctors told me I had three months to live. Can you imagine one day being a healthy, fun-loving young woman at the prime of my life, and then being told such devastating news?" Now, 14 years later, showing no signs of cancer, she uses that same motivation to coach others as The Warrior Coach, providing resources through her app and website UraWarrior.com. Shaw says, "I birthed the URAWARRIOR app for teenagers, young adults, men and women who may be embarrassed about their mental struggles and hiding their truth."
Also featured is Alice "Nurse Alice" Benjamin, FNP of Ask Nurse Alice via nurse.org. Nurse Alice has been a leader in the medical industry for over 25 years. Working closely with the NAACP, American Heart Association and AARP, her messaging has been focused on early detection, screening and proper treatment to build healthy, thriving communities.
