Engage and inform your audience with one of my programs:
Power Of The Written Word: The first part of this program is a reading and group discussion on how the PIRJ stories relate to similar experiences in our own lives. In the second part, guests are provided the tools, and encouraged to write and share their own “Note From The Heart”, reflecting on a personal life-changing event. (90 -120 minutes)
Finding Hope & Healing in Your Cancer Journey: Drawing from the experiences of the women and men featured in her acclaimed book Pink Ribbon Journey, and also from her own breast cancer journey, Norma offers insight into the different ways patients and their families can cope with and heal from a cancer diagnosis. (45 -60 minutes)
The Hidden Genes – What’s Hanging in the Back of Your Closet?: Nine women. Three generations. In this powerful and moving speech Norma shares her family’s extraordinary 60-year journey with breast cancer and the unknown mystery why BRCA negative family members are being diagnosed with breast cancer. (50 minutes with slide show)
Being Good to Your Girls: In this popular program, Norma will join with a breast imager and a “green living” advocate from your own community in a panel discussion about early detection and screening, living “green” to reduce the risk of breast cancer, and what to do when someone you love is diagnosed with breast cancer. (75 minutes)
