Guest Speaker:  Kris Carr: CrazySexyCancer Author, filmmaker and "Cancer Cowgirl." In 2003 31-year-old actress/photographer Kris Carr was diagnosed with a rare and incurable cancer. Weeks later she began filming her story, which was aired as a documentary on TLS. Taking a seemly tragic situation and turning it into a creative expression, Kris continues to share her inspirational story of survival with courage, strength and humor through her film, books, website and keynote addresses.


Emory Winship's Celebration of Living, in its 16th year, is a free educational event for cancer patients and their family members and loved ones.  Educational sessions provide attendees with information on cancer therapies, nutrition, exercise, and maintaining a positive outlook.
