Well Talk ~ Living Inspired: The Conversations

As part of our Well Talk Series we are pleased to include inspirational speakers who have experienced significant health or life challenges including, but not limited to a diagnosis of cancer. What can we learn? What strategies, skills, and inner resources did each person access to cope with and move through difficulties – whether they were big or small?

We are please to have Sherry Abbot join us.

 

 

Sherry was the Director, Public Relations at Revlon Canada when she was diagnosed with small-cell ovarian cancer in 1989. At that time her prognosis was dim: a rare disease, few treatment options and virtually no survivors. Due to the advanced stage of her disease she was told she had only a few months to live and that she should prepare to move to a Nursing home as she likely would not be able to look after herself. In that moment her spirit was broken. Thirty-two years later- Sherry is still here and thriving. What can she share about her 32 years of experience not only coping with, but participating in her overall medical care, wellbeing and selfcare? In Sherry’s words..”My cancer experience has taught me many great lessons. I have learned that we are so much more than just our physical bodies. In harmony and balance, and with a strong connection between our mind, body and spirit, we can all live better, more fulfilling lives.

We hope you will join us for this our second in the series: Living Inspired.
