Heming-Willis shared, “I know it looks like I'm out living my best life. I have to make a conscious effort every single day to live the best life that I can.” She also emphasized the importance of self-care for caregivers, stating, “I don't want it to be misconstrued that like, I'm good, 'cause I'm not. I'm not good. But I have to put my best foot forward for the sake of myself and my family because again, when we are not looking after ourselves, we cannot look after anyone that we love.”
