In her presentation she eloquently shared her personal journey with cancer. She engaged the audience with her inner strength, personal growth and her appreciation for living life more fully as a result of her cancer experience.

"As an orator, she always presents with a genuine essence and ease. Her narrative tone is both soft and strong. I have truly enjoyed listening to and learning from all of her presentations!"

"Deborah Ludwig is an inspirational and accomplished speaker and author. In December of 2009, I was fortunate enough to listen to her candidly speak about her courageous battle with acute lymphocytic leukemia, which she documented in her wonderfully honest book titled Rebirth. She speaks and writes from the heart as she shares her daily struggles of her survival journey, filling us all with her message of hope and love.

"I myself had recently been diagnosed with a chronic form of leukemia, and while listening to her passionately tell her story I felt that her strength and positive message had given me a sense of peace and hope, which has helped me to face whatever my future might bring. She is real and her testimony of survival and hope should be read and heard by all."
