Through Triage Cancer’s Speakers Bureau, cancer centers, hospitals, cancer organizations, and other groups that are coordinating educational events can be connected with expert speakers on various cancer survivorship issues.
Triage Cancer’s Speakers Bureau also includes cancer survivors and caregivers who have experience sharing their cancer journey with a variety of audiences. If you are planning an event, it is a good idea to request speakers as early as possible. Some of our speakers are often booked months in advance.
Triage Cancer can also assist in the comprehensive coordination of educational events, in addition to providing speakers on specific topics.
Below you can learn more about each speaker, sort speakers by particular areas of expertise, and read about potential topics that you may want to include in your next event!
Ann Fry is a professional speaker and an organizational/executive coach. She built this practice by first being a psychotherapist, a health-care administrator, and a college professor. For the last 17 years, Ann has worked around the country speaking, training and coaching in corporations, non-profits, government agencies and at professional association conferences. She brings inspiration for change to her audiences, as well as her sense of humor. She helps to inspire people to move away from the “status quo” – to something that excites them, gives them juice, gets them out of bed in the morning.
In the midst of this career, in 2009, Ann was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, underwent chemotherapy, radiation, etc. and then a year later was diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome, an auto-immune disorder. In 2013, her son was diagnosed with melanoma and is doing well. Previously, Ann lost two brothers to cancer, one at the early age of 27.
Now, she speaks about her “adventures” through illness, Resiliency, THRIVING and the things that get her through the setbacks.
