"Warm, Witty and From the Heart..."
After publishing my book, The Hat That Saved My Life in 2004, I have dedicated myself full-time to bringing my message to women around the world. Whether as a motivational keynote conference speaker, breast cancer awareness month speaker, workshop leader, or radio show host, I break through the boundaries that are holding us back from enjoying life fully. I will share my experience of battling cancer since 1996, and now in the fight for my life with stage 4 cancer that has spread to my liver, lungs and bones, I will continue to share my journey and give hope to those experiencing life's traumas.
As a five-time survivor of advanced stage breast cancer, and now metastatic stage 4 cancer, I will give your audience hope and inspiration that the best is yet to come.
Join me each week on Voiceamerica.com for an interview with people from around the globe. We will discuss living with cancer, living after cancer, and how to reduce our risk of cancer with nutrition, exercise, and more.
