“Anyone who needs to see that there are blessings in every curse should read Healey’s book and learn from his experience about how to create a healing team and how to heal one’s own life.” – Bernie Siegel, MD, Author of ‘Help Me to Heal’ and ‘365 Prescriptions for the Soul
Using his life-threatening and facially disfiguring cancer survival story as the platform that led him to a successful career in business, Terry Healey captivates and educates audiences on how to take control of their lives, identify and overcome challenges, build trust and teams, embrace change, and learn the value of tolerance and acceptance. He views the lessons he learned in life as gifts, and believes his greatest reward is being able to teach others how to overcome adversity and celebrate life.
Terry is a cancer survivor who endured over thirty surgical procedures in an effort to reconstruct his face, which was disfigured by a fibrosarcoma. In his latest memoir titled At Face Value: My Triumph Over a Disfiguring Cancer Terry relays lessons in courage and hope.
