Carol Chaoui -042



We’ve spent the month of October shining a light on the fight against breast cancer.  While there are new drug therapies that enable women to live longer, breast cancer statistics remain the same:  1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her life time. And every 65 seconds, someone hears the words:  “you have breast cancer.”   I take the battle against breast cancer very seriously because I am a motherless daughter.  My mother Marjorie was only 52 when she died.  I was 18 and that loss defined me.  Years later, as a broadcaster, I had the opportunity to create a show, and put these women in the spotlight.  I did this for selfish reasons:  I needed to learn the kind of lessons from them that my own mother couldn’t teach me, because she was gone. I needed to soak up their wisdom, and I have.  Their stories have filled my heart.  And that quest for inspiring stories continues with this podcast series. In the spotlight: a woman who is a wife, mother, marathon runner, philanthropist and stage 4 cancer survivor.  In fact, this exceptional woman is living with 2 stage 4 cancer diagnoses: breast and thyroid. Her success story is based on putting one foot in front of the other, always walking forward, always running toward the finish line and never, ever giving up hope. This is the story of Carol Chaoui of Wellesley, Massachusetts.   #wellesley    #storybehindhersuccess    #16LifeLessons   #mydoveproductions
