Cancer Survivor

Joni Aldrich

On May 13, 2004, a cancer diagnosis changed Joni Aldrich’s life forever.  That was the day that she and her 43-year-old husband, Gordon, were told that he had a rare form of cancer. Once the shock wore off, what followed were two years of intense treatments including three stem cell transplants. Joni was Gordon’s primary caregiver often 800 miles away from home. Tragically the cancer invaded his brain, and Gordon died two years to the day after he was diagnosed.

As she went about rebuilding her life, Joni realized that there were invaluable lessons that she’d learned through the process of trying to save Gordon. She gave up her lucrative career and founded Cancer Lifeline Publications. Her own personal mission includes six amazing books (so far) to help others with practical, more focused strategies to survive cancer, caregiving, brain illness, and grief. 
But that wasn’t enough. Joni now produces and hosts five international radio shows every week: Cancer S.O.S., Diagnosis S.O.S., Caregiving S.O.S., Treatment S.O.S. and Ladies Who Inspire.
