Cindy serves as an inspiration to many. To women when it comes to having had the courage to walk away from years of abuse. To cancer sufferers and survivors with her strong message of hope.

Cindy’s message portrayed in her talks, is to inspire people to do “more than survive, but to thrive.” The tenacity of the human spirit is evident in the way she has lived her life, and survived huge challenges, hoping that people are inspired by her messages, and if she can touch one person’s life through her motivational talks, then it is job done.
