Looking for a speaker for your civic group or organization?
We enjoy making presentations to civic organizations, classrooms, businesses, and just about anyone who wants to learn more about living with cancer and how to help a person with cancer.
Here’s a “review” of Bob’s recent presentation to the Ithaca Rotary:
When he speaks, Bob fills the room with reassurance. His smile is calming even through the dire nature of his topic. His voice is steady and expressive, presenting all at once the wisdom of doctor, nurse, social worker, friend, and guy in line at Wegmans who confides, “yeah, been there, done that, got the t-shirt.
Bob’s presentation was a step-by-step, start to finish, what do you say and how do you act when suddenly there is cancer — someone, somewhere — in your life. So many practical questions were answered that it would be impossible to cover them all here.
Throughout his talk, Bob emphasized that those on the sidelines need more than anything to be good listeners, and be present. He closed with a Shaker saying, “Let your words be few and seasoned with grace.”
To arrange a presentation, contact Bob at email@example.com or 277-0960.
Join us for Fun, Food & Friends at the Third Tuesday Gathering!
This month the “Third Tuesday Gathering” will be Aug. 18 from 5:30-7pm at CRC (light refreshments served).
