Before the year ends, I’m excited to share one more podcast episode with you that will touch your heart.
Andrea Wilson Woods and I met several years ago when she joined my coach training school. I could tell she had what it took to be an incredible coach. And I was impressed by her skills and background she brought to her work - writing, teaching and acting. She got to work coaching her clients and building her business.
I soon learned that like me, Andrea had also lost her younger sister to cancer. And she has truly turned that loss into something extraordinary that’s changing lives.
Andrea has a passion for advocating for liver cancer, which stemmed from her sister Adrienne’s diagnosis and fight with liver cancer as a child. She uses her knowledge and experience to run Blue Faery: The Adrienne Wilson Liver Cancer Association, and her for-profit foundation, Cancer University.
Andrea wants to change the cancer paradigm in the United States and she believes to ignite change you have to go to the source: the patient. She wants to teach cancer patients and caregivers how to become advocates for themselves so they can change their cancer journey.
