I hope this blog encourages you to reach for the stars, to accomplish your dreams. My hope is that you believe anything is possible, and that you can overcome any challenges that come your way. As a stage IV HPV throat cancer survivor, staying positive is key to serving as a role model for other survivors, caregivers and those currently battling cancer. Remaining positive was critical as I battled cancer back in 2014.
I have been truly inspired all week, as I stayed up late watching the Golden Buzzer Performances from America’s Got Talent (AGT). For those of you who do not watch this show, a performer is awarded the golden buzzer when their act is extraordinary, and when the judge hits the golden buzzer the act is assured automatic placement in the live semi-final rounds. This show takes places in countries all over the world.
Please watch this remarkable video of Lorelai Mosnegutu, a 14 year old girl who was born without arms or femurs as she sings and plays the piano on Romania’s Got Talent. This golden buzzer performance brought tears of joy to my eyes, and has me looking within myself to make certain I am creating “golden buzzer” moments in my life.
