Behind the Mask with Cassandra Perkins

I had the honor last week of being a guest on Cassandra Perkins radio show(Behind the Mask)  last week along with an all star cast of guests,  Woody Roseland, Brittany Ross and Christa Black.

It was my first time on the radio.   I was a bit nervous at the start, but once we got going I had a great time.

Cassie's first guest was Woody Roseland who is a five time cancer survivor, stand up comedian and inspirational speaker who is currently running for Man of the Year for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Woody lost his leg to bone cancer and he has not let that stop him or define him. You are not your cancer!   He rides his bike across the country in an effort to raise money for cancer research.

Brittany Ross shared her story of being diagnosed with A.M.L at the age of 15 and was given three weeks to live.  Brittany is now 28 and will be getting married in September of this year.

Christa Black shared a very powerful story. You can read more about Christa by clicking here. 

What was really cool about the radio show, was every speaker shared a story of hope.

If you are interested you can listen to the  entire podcast by clicking here.    Be sure and check out Cassie's show and follow this young woman who continues to inspire me as she makes a difference in the world.

I love this young woman for who she is in the world, for what she stands for. She is a champion of hope.

Check out Cassie's Tedx talk she gave last year. WOW!!!
