Soroptimist International of Redding's 17th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon

Breast Cancer Awareness

It's that time of year again... Soroptimist International of Redding is gearing up for our 17th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon! You WANT to be at this event -- here is a little bit of info on this year's guest speaker, Becky Olson: Becky is the perfect example of a woman who took a dismal forecast of her future and redirected her life to bring more meaning to herself, her family and her world. Through three personal battles with breast cancer, she was able to see the bright side of her circumstances and co-founded a non-profit to help other women battling cancer. By realigning her priorities and focus, she was able to truly discover her passion. Once she combined her passion and her gift of communicating with an audience, she began to soar. She is now a national speaker, with a true zest for life. Becky is well known for her expressive insights as she shares her inspirational and humorous approach to answering the questions that cancer survivors, medical professionals, and women in general, need to know. She not only encourages her audiences to look for the blessings in adversity, she teaches them how to overcome them. She is a firm believer that everyone should have a bucket list. At 43, when she was first diagnosed with advanced stage breast cancer, she wrote her list of things to do before she died. On her list was graduating from college, singing lead with a band and buying a cabin on a lake. At age 50, Becky graduated from college. At age 57, she finally got her cabin on a lake. At age 61, she landed a spot as lead singer in a new band appropriately named, “Bucket List.” As each goal is achieved, she continues to add something new. This is one list she never wants to finish. See! You're hooked now, right? Save the date and mark your calendars today! We are looking forward to another amazing event full of inspiration and heart. We hope that you will join us.
