Join the conversation as we celebrate an evening of hope with author, speaker and blogger, Tami Boehmer.
Five years into being cancer-free, Tami Boehmer was suddenly faced with a recurrence of breast cancer. Equipped with expertise in Public Relations and an unwavering spirit to beat the odds, Tami began an incredible journey of searching for “miracle survivors.”
Through countless hours of research and survivor interviews, she gained strength and courage to challenge medical predictions. Facing her fears head-on helped her combat negative thinking and view cancer as a catalyst rather than a sentence.
On May 20th at 7PM EDT, we’ll highlight Tami’s story of survivorship – bringing our listeners appreciation, discovery and hope. We’ll delve inside the pages of her book, From Incurable to Incredible: Cancer Survivors Who Beat the Odds, while celebrating her determination to fulfill a greater purpose in life.
Visit Tami before and after the show on her site. There you'll find a wealth of information, inspiration, events, and a look inside her exceptional book. http://www.tamiboehmer.com/
