    Cancer affects every single one of us, directly or indirectly. My unique battle with Leukemia was the defining moment in my life, pushing me far beyond what I thought were my physical and mental limits. I'll share the brightest of days and darkest of night in my journey and how I learn to leverage my experience for the good. Each day I attempt to 'Earn the Gift,' hopefully my thoughts on attitude and perspective will inspire you to view life a bit differently.

    Life By Design
    Teresa Lewis

    In a world full of complexity, competing demands and occasional chaos, it's easy to let life pass you by. That changes once you get intentional about your life and your choices every day. At the heart of the challenge is figuring out what you can control, and taking control of it. Equally important is letting go of that which you can't control. This inspirational session can change your life if you let it - at work, at home, in every aspect. This session is based on Teresa's book, Life by Design.
