Breast Cancer Saved My Life

While I was speaking at the 50 Shades of Pink event in Castroville, TX, a lovely woman approached me and said, “Breast cancer saved my life.”

Her story is nothing short of a miracle. She found a lump in her breast during a self-check examination. After a doctor’s visit, she was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer. But this is not the end of the story. Her surgeon also found a more serious problem- a life-threatening aneurysm. After her repair surgery and breast cancer treatment, her passion in life is to speak with women on the importance of having regular mammograms and self-check routines. Wow, what a story!

When I speak for women, I always conclude my presentations with my original Healthy Woman Song. Go here for a good laugh and healthy reminder! My book, “What Ta-Tas Teach Us” is also a great reminder of what our female anatomy teaches us.

How to Enhance Your Writing Career

Tucked away in the “desire of my heart” was writing. This desire could have come to screeching halt when my English college professor handed me the bright red “F” on my first English writing assignment. As a professional speaker, back of the room sales and product development is always important, so I gave my first book a go. Surprisingly, people liked my little book entitled, “Bare Beet to High Heels; You Don’t have to be a Beauty Queen to be a Beautiful Person.” As a humorist speaker who presents inspirational presentations, I decided to take the plunge attend a conference and learn how to start a writing career.Tucked away in the “desire of my heart” was writing.  This desire could have come to screeching halt when my English college professor handed me the bright red “F” on my first English writing assignment.  As a professional speaker, back of the room sales and product development is always important, so I gave my first book a go. Surprisingly, people liked my little book entitled, “Bare Feet to High Heels; You Don’t have to be a Beauty Queen to be a Beautiful Person.” As a humorist speaker who presents inspirational presentations, I decided to take the plunge, attend a conference and learn how to enhance your writing career. Last week, Alton Gansky, the Director of the Blue Ridge Writer’s Christian Writers Conference, asked me to share my journey combining my talents as a funny keynote speaker and writer. Thanks to a great team;  Eddie Jones of Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas, Tim Burns and Meaghan Burnett, my latest book, “Bury Me with My Pearls” has been in the top ten in twenty Amazon categories.  I hope this Youtube interview will help both writers and professional speakers in their pursuit of combining their talents. How to Enchance Your Writing Career
