Ever met a woman who has braved cancer all while carrying a tiny life within her? Charlotte Ralph, a working mum and founder of the personal styling business Chic by Charlotte, happens to be one such amazing lady. Join me—albeit with slightly less clarity on my end due to a microphone mishap, as I sit down with Charlotte, unearthing her inspiring journey from the NHS to establishing her own business, all while juggling the responsibilities of motherhood.

Charlotte's world, once rhythmed with the predictable beats of family life and career, shifted dramatically when she discovered a lump on her neck. Diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma during pregnancy, she faced her ordeal with the kind of bravery that echoes through time. In this episode, Charlotte recounts her battle and the bittersweet joy of welcoming new life while fighting for her own. 

Battle-hardened, she shares the poignant experience of bonding with her newborn amidst intensive chemo and the aftermath of a stem cell transplant. This is a story of the power of hope and the will to survive.

The twists and turns of life morphed Charlotte's perspective on planning and routines. We touch upon the evolution of her relationship with her daughter and how it has been shaped by her health issues. The conversation culminates in discussing her recent decision to restart her business - the motivation behind it, the hurdles faced, and the joy of transforming a dream into reality. 

So, what does it take to press 'play' on your passions after life hits 'pause'? Charlotte's tale of reawakening her business post-cancer will leave you with a heart full of hope and a mind buzzing with the art of the possible.

Despite the technical glitches on my side, Charlotte's story remains untarnished—a narrative of perseverance, love, and the reclamation of identity beyond illness.  Buckle up for a ride through resilience and the raw beauty of redefining life on your terms. This episode isn't just a story—it's a masterclass in not just surviving but thriving. Tune in, and let's get inspired together.
