Hi Friends!

I'm so very excited about this upcoming event - both because I loved Kelly Corrigan's book, The Middle Place, (read more about her below) and because it benefits Columbia St. Mary's Cancer Centers.

As you know, I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 42. After checking out three cancer treatment programs, I chose Columbia St. Mary's because I was confident in the cancer-fighting treatment I would receive and the team was simply amazing. My cancer physicians all worked together to plan out the best treatment for me. And my nurse navigator, Peggy, walked me through every single step of my cancer journey.

This event's proceeds will help bring a specialized nurse navigator to the CSM team to work with patients throughout their cancer journey. This navigator works hand-in-hand with the cancer care team and, most importantly, with the patient to guide them through the challenges and celebrations of getting back to living a normal life after cancer.

I'm asking you to support this incredible team and future cancer patients! You can attend the event or make a donation to my team.




Speaking of HOPE Featured Speaker

Kelly Corrigan

Author, Philanthropist & Breast Cancer Survivor 





Cool, funny, smart and authentic are just a few ways people have described Kelly Corrigan. 

Kelly has delighted audiences with her many appearances on The Today Show, as well as in person, speaking with humor and compassion to groups at hospitals, corporations and nonprofits. 

Fearlessly tackling subjects as wide-ranging as caregiving, death, childhood and motherhood, Kelly humorously and poignantly shares her most personal stories in order to inspire readers and audiences across the nation. 

Kelly’s highly engaging books - The Middle Place, Lift and Glitter and Glue - swiftly guide the reader through her introspective, transparent, and saucy view of life, love and relationships. 

An accomplished columnist, Kelly's writing has appeared in Glamour and Good Housekeeping, and she is now a contributor to O, The Oprah Winfrey Magazine.

Kelly is an incredibly personable, extraordinarily witty and remarkably relevant woman who will keep you entertained and inspired throughout the evening!
