Patient Keynote: Unleashing Your Unsinkable Spirit

Unleash Your Unsinkable Spirit is a keynote for patients with chronic illness and those who love and care for them. Receiving a diagnosis of a life-challenging illness can be devastating to both patients and their families. This uplifting keynote address focuses on finding and strengthening the unsinkable spirit, which lies within each of us. Cindy teaches how to make the successful transition from a healthy “old life” to a fulfilling “new normal.” Through stories of acceptance and optimism, the audience is led on a journey of hope that will be remembered and used, well beyond the conference room doors.
