  • “Don’t Just Survive- Thrive”

    “You have cancer!” Hearing those words changed my life forever.  I had become a member of a club that I didn’t ask to join.  Although I was grateful for survival, I knew I wanted to do more, so I learned how to thrive. Dr. Sheron turned her breast cancer diagnosis into a worldwide survival event by deciding that this disease was not just about her, but the millions of others that were in the club.  She created a non- profit that raised thousands of dollars to provide free mammograms, partnered with a hospital to create the “Patterson Pledge”, which encourages health awareness. In this session she teaches participants how to leverage their health circumstances to educate and inspire those around them and shares thriving tips from her book  “ The Blessing and the Bling, How Faith and Fashion Helped Me Survive Breast Cancer.”
