Signing books after the CanCare presentation in Houston

Tami Boehmer has traveled around the country spreading the message of hope and inspiration to groups of all types. Although her message especially appeals to cancer survivors and their loved ones, her overriding message of overcoming obstacles despite all odds has something for everyone. Hear what people have said about her presentations:
“When Tami Boehmer announced that she would be in Houston for a few days, I knew immediately that she had something many of our CanCare Volunteers and Referrals needed: HOPE. I work for CanCare, where we connect newly diagnosed cancer patients with someone who is surviving their same diagnosis. We also match individuals experiencing a recurrence of their cancer with someone who has faced that same circumstance.
“In my 10 years of working in the oncology arena, I have never seen a book like Tami’s. She offers hope, encouragement and comfort to people facing a stage IV cancer diagnosis. Her book shares over 25 stories of people who have “beat the odds!” I invited all of our stage IV cancer survivors and referrals to her book signing event for “From Incurable to Incredible: Cancer Survivors Who Beat the Odds,” where Tami also gave a 30 minute presentation to the group.

“I knew we had a large need, but I certainly wasn’t prepared for what happened when the room became standing-room-only, and nearly 100 stage IV survivors and their loved ones were able to visit with one another, listen to a Greg Barnhill’s testimony of surviving ocular melanoma and a second diagnosis of mesothelioma, and a wonderful and insightful presentation by Tami Boehmer. Tami sold out of all her books and there has been a rippling effect of HOPE since this event. I direct everyone I know to Tami’s book. It takes a very special person to listen to so many cancer survivor’s stories, and then compile them into a readable format. Tami’s work is an inspiration and we are so grateful for her willingness to share it with us.”
Kim Akel, CanCare, Houston
“Tami spoke at a Linking Indy Women event and took our breath away. She shared her journey with us about how she turned her cancer into a blessing by writing a book to inspire others. Her book “Incurable to Incredible” shares inspiring stories of people living with cancer and how they have beaten the odds in so many ways. Tami is an incredible person and I highly recommend her and her book to everyone!”
Sarah Lacey, Linking Indy Women, Indianapolis

“Tami spoke at weSPARK Cancer Support Center at the end of 2014. It was an inspiration to all of us to hear her story and the stories of the other speakers about their journey after diagnosis. We have many guests at our center that are ‘living with cancer,’ a diagnosis that is not often thought of as the norm. It can be hard for them to remain positive and wrap their heads around that diagnosis. Tami’s book and the talk really proved that they can beat the odds and live a full life with cancer! Thank you so much for the inspiration!”

– Lea Salvatore, M.P.H., weSPARK Cancer Support Center, Sherman Oaks, CA
