Featured Speaker:Donna Heckler, Director of Communications for Society of the Sacred Heart, author and national speaker

Donna Heckler has served as a global marketing executive for several multi-billion dollar organizations. A very accomplished and busy professional, she missed God in her everyday life, and yet couldn’t figure out how to make time for him. So, God gave her a “time-out” with a freak leg accident. No sooner had her leg started to heal then she was laid off, and so she found herself interviewing for a new job when she discovered her stage 3 breast cancer.

Highly motivational and energizing, Donna Heckler shares her personal journey through a shattered leg, a new job and cancer. Trusting in God, while finding humor in her situation at times, she leans heavily on her spiritual foundation to stand up to her challenges, choosing to live as radiantly as possible in the process. She jokes that God gave her a timeout when she injured her leg. However, because she didn’t fully learn to sit quietly with him, he gave her another, bigger time out, stage 3 cancer.

During her journey, she kept a journal, a blog. She has since converted the journal into the Award Winning book entitled, “Living Like A Lady When You Have Cancer.” She interviewed many other patients and medical providers, in an effort to provide countless insights, tips and tricks to live, and live radiantly through a cancer journey.

God now takes a front seat in her life as she shares her journey, her beliefs, tips and tricks. While the tips and tricks in her book are very practical – what to wear to chemo, how to apply make-up to cover up the puffiness from steroids, Ms. Heckler’s belief is that if we can easily know about and take care of the little things of everyday life, it frees us up to live radiantly, with God shining through every day.

Ms. Heckler shares her story, her path, with humor, faith and passion. She motivates and energizes you to live your most radiant life, regardless of the journey you are on.
