Among Women 149: H.O.P.E for Breast Cancer Survivors – A Special Edition

October 23, 2012

This week’s episode:

Breast cancer will affect one in eight women in the course of  their lifetime. We ALL know someone who has suffered with this disease. This podcast contains a recording I made of a recent talk I gave to the breast cancer survivor support group known as The Visions of Hope that covers the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York. I was the guest speaker at their luncheon held at the Clifton Springs Country Club in Clifton Springs, NY, on October 7. My remarks were made as coffee was poured and dessert was served. In this talk I reflect on my 17 years of survivorship and advocate that “thriver-ship” is possible when survivors acknowledge that their superpower is hope. Please share this talk with those who may benefit from it.
