About the Presenter

"We all go through experiences in life that leave us a changed person. I don't think I had ever truly understood how essential it is to live your life with hope until I watched my younger sister Maureen during her two year battle with cancer. Hope gave her the courage to face life's challenges and the belief that life holds wonderful possibilities. It kept her dreams alive and nourished her spirit. Maureen was blessed with hope and though it exists for all of us, sometimes it must be found." Susan Bertrand, Founder, Maureen's Hope Foundation.
