Balance: Living Well and Staying Healthy Dr. Marla Shapiro’s keynotes offer valuable “me-time” for audience members, helping them to see the things that matter in developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and some of the major issues at the forefront of today’s medical care. As a broadcaster and columnist she provides people with the latest medical news as well as practical advice to keep the entire family healthy, and allow them to make smart healthcare decisions. A warm, compelling and compassionate speaker, she brings this same focus to her live presentations, sharing advice and information that everyone can use in their daily lives. Survivorship: With, Through and Beyond In August, 2004, Shapiro found out she had an invasive form of breast cancer. Like the more than 20,000 Canadian women who are diagnosed every year with the disease, her world changed forever. This intimate, inspiring and often surprising account of her illness, from the shock of the initial diagnosis to multiple surgeries, chemotherapy and her agonizing decision to have both breasts removed, followed by reconstructive surgery and recovery. She candidly recounts her struggle going from the woman who routinely delivered all the seemingly right answers to her patients and her family, to the woman who quickly discovered that there were no right answers when it came to her own life-altering decisions.
