Laurie Ann Nelson — author, cancer survivor, and celebrated speaker — understands the pain of having dreams deferred. Laurie shares her extraordinary story of overcoming a life-and-death battle with Stage 3 brain cancer.

Laurie is married and has one beautiful daughter and two wonderful grandchildren. Before her battle with cancer, she worked in a financial institution for 16 years, building her career in Retail banking.
