Marion Behr is an accomplished visual artist, publisher, and author, and she's on a mission to help others in quite an extraordinary fashion. Tucked inside Surviving Cancer: Our Voices & Choices, she has compiled and illustrated a collection of essays, reflections, and artwork. Sifting through the compilation, readers are immersed in a sense of hope through art and story. Marion Behr provides a remarkable illustration of the hope that prevails when survivors, organizations, care teams and others align themselves as a healing force in the cancer battle, and beyond.

This timeless source book is written, in part, by cancer survivors of different ages who provide insight into personal experiences and choices -- to ease the way for new cancer patients. Doctors’ articles are arranged to correspond with the order of visits experienced by most cancer patients. Personal narrations afford a view of cancer survivors' stories across the United States and Canada and as far away as Cambodia and Israel.

Marion created the first national survey of women working from home in the 1970's and originated the concept of the Homebased Business, and then formed Women Working Home Inc. with Wendy Lazar. Together, they co-authored two editions of Women Working Home: The Homebased Business Guide and Directory,  and sold fifty thousand copies. 

Marion later received a Presidential Appointment to The White House Conference on Small Business and her presentations to the US Labor Department and Senate helped change laws on home based businesses.

Cancer affects us all. Whether you've fought the battle or loved another through it, the journey is personal and profound. Join us to hear what it takes to organize a world-collaboration for the sake of helping others more deeply understand survivors' voices and choices.
