Hi All! I wanted to share some upcoming events/conferences that I am excited to be attending and hosting, all taking place in Florida in just a couple of weeks!
I’m headed to South Florida with a pretty packed schedule and I wanted to share in order to invite local Floridian Thrivers or non-local Thrivers (if you’re down for the trip) to come on out and join, learn and be inspired. And not to worry, if you can’t attend, I will be sure to blog a follow up post to share all that I learned and accomplished. Stay tuned!
My Thiver sis Nalie will be flying down from Montreal to join! We’re meeting on her layover in New York and then we are off to Florida together on this 10 day adventure to learn about health, healing and the latest-greatest infomation in the pipeline for breast cancer. Our goal is to learn, share and take some much needed time to write our book that we are currently co-authing, The Thriver’s Guide: How to Heal and Live Your Best Life Beyond Cancer. Visit our site to learn more about our venture and subscibe to our mailing list for announcements, healhy tips, info and webinars. You will also be the first to know when The Thriver’s Guide will be published and released to the world!
Here are the deets about what’s going down!
CAM Conference – February 28th – March 2nd
First stop: West Plam Beach Florida for the 13th Annual Evidence Based Complementary and Alternative Cancer Therapies Conference. This Conference is founded and hosted by Ann Fonfa (Annie Appleseed) who cured her breast cancer using altrnative therapies. More specifically, she actually healed using Dr George Wong’s Chinese herbs! You can learn more about her story here. I have been on his herbs for over 5 years and know that they have played an enormous role in keeping me alive and healthy too. I’m really looking forward to meeting Ann and learning more about natural healing.
The conference is actually filled up and registration is closed but I will be blogging and sharing highlights from the conference so stay tuned!
South Florida Thriver MeetUp! – March 3rd
Right after the CAM Conference Nalie and I are headed to Boca from West Palm to stay with my best friend and business partner Amanda. Together we founded our company Thrive Gang and on Sunday March 3rd, we will be hosting a Thriver MeetUp in Boca! We wanted to make sure we put aside some special time to create a space for those affected by cancer to gather, share and be inspired. Come connect with other local thrivers and be a part of an intimate circle with deep discussions during our LIVE Q&A where Nalie and I will be serving up some inspiration.
Thanks to The Flamingo House, our 2nd annual Thriver meet-up will be on Sunday, March 3rd from 2-4pm in their incredible, chic workspace where we will provide healthy bites, refreshments and will be showcasing Thrive Gang gifts and merch!
The event is FREE, but space is limited – so save your spot:
The first 12 Thrivers to register will receive a free Team Thriver Tee so be sure to reserve your apot ASAP! We hope to see you there!
Miami Breast Cancer Conference – March 8th – 10th
The last leg of the Florida tour brings me to Miami where I have the absolute honor to be the patient keynote speaker at the Annual Miami Breast Cancer Conference! Together with Dr Patrick Borgen, the man who uncovered my misdiagnosis and saved my life, I will share my story and speak to 1000 oncologists, radiologists and breast surgeons. My goal is to convey the significance of the patient/doctor relationship, the power of their words and the importance of being heard as patients. I will also speak on a metastatic breast cancer patient panel alongside some world renowned oncologists. I look forward to this incredible weekend and the opportunity to make a positive impact on patient care.
If you can join any of the events please do! I have linked all of the info throughout. Hope to see you in Florida!… or stay tuned for a recap!
Love and Health,
