life lessons from a stage IV colon cancer survivor

I offer a unique perspective, having worked professionally in healthcare and been both a patient and an advocate personally. As a cancer survivor and parent of a severely disabled child, I have first-hand knowledge of what it takes to navigate through life’s tough stuff. Staying positive, strong, and well informed on your situation are all key points in reaching your goals. Need help? Reach out and let me use my experience to get you on your road to success.

Life is not always fair.  Stacy Hurt has been dealt with more adversity that any one person should face.  BUT it’s how she has faced it that makes her such an inspiration!   She not only has taken on cancer, she allows people who have similar problems to watch her battles up close.  She talks about them.  She talks about how she deals. She’s strong. She’s fighting and she’s winning.  She gives others hope they can do the same. Stacy Hurt is a winner and can make you one too by just listening to her story.

Stacy Hurt is a true warrior and overcomer, and that was very evident in her words and stage presence.  She was very engaging and colorful with her words and it definitely kept the audience focused on her.  Stacy is doing an amazing job raising awareness of colon cancer and ultimately saving lives!

It’s unbelievable how positive this woman stays, despite her struggles.  She is a great example of looking at life in a positive way, no matter what is thrown at you, and be an inspiration to so, so many.  Stacy uses her sense of humor to put people at ease when talking about a difficult subject.  I emcee many events… She beats me hands down!  She is amazing, inside and out!

Stacy brings a special blend of humor, poise and the ability to build rapport with her audience to every engagement.  She speaks with passion, and shares her story in a genuine, compelling way that brought our audience to its feet.  After our event, members of our group lined up to speak personally with Stacy, and she was just as engaging one-on-one as she was with the microphone in her hand.
