Event Details

The moment you’re diagnosed with cancer you’re a survivor, and life itself is cause for celebration. Join us for 90 uplifting, enlightening minutes of laughter, music, conversation and surprises with three dynamic women who reinvented their lives in the wake of devastating cancer diagnoses.

NYT bestselling author Joni Rodgers used her chemo downtime to write her first two novels. She chronicled her experience as a young mother with lymphoma in her memoir Bald in the Land of Big Hair, which led to a surprising series of celebrity ghostwriting gigs.

West Coast singing sensation Laura Roppé left a successful legal career to chase her rock’roll dreams. Her memoir Rocking the Pink tells how a triple negative breast cancer diagnoses devastated her just as her debut album rocketed up the charts.

Author, literary agent and creativity guru Orna Ross rewrote her own destiny after breast cancer, founding the Alliance of Independent Authors and taking a bold step forward with her critically acclaimed novels After the Rising and Before the Fall.

Hear their stories, share your story, and celebrate the spirit of survivorship! We’ll be gifting books and door prizes and connecting you with some terrific tips and resources between Q&A and small group chat opportunities. (We'll also honor co-survivors with Kisses for Caregivers, so be sure to invite the friends and family who made the journey with you!)
