Donna Heckler’s Second Book Provides Indispensable Tips and Insights for Living Your Most Radiant Life, from Diagnosis through Final Treatment










The book Living Like A Lady When You Have Cancer has received so many accolades since its release, including a 2015 Finalist Award from the International Book Awards in the Health: Cancer category. Because of the help women are receiving from the book, Ms. Heckler was asked by cancer support organizations and area hospitals to provide a seminar series to their patients for a more personalized and community experience. In response to this demand, Ms. Heckler has created and hosted the “Be Radiant” seminar series, which includes three distinct seminars.
