Faith Leadership Board
SURVIVEiT® understands that faith is a crucial element for many individuals in their cancer journey. The faith component is perhaps one of the most personal parts of this very personal disease. A cancer diagnosis will often times challenge both attitude and faith. The Faith Leadership Board bears a specific responsibility to provide others with the same faith support opportunities that they were blessed with, however will never violate anyone's freedom of spiritual preference.

Q: What do you want others to know about living a life guided by faith?
A: Living the life guided by faith often eliminates the quandary of difficult decision making. Living by faith and obedience pretty much answers all my questions. My purpose, my joy, and my general outlook on life is the by-product of my faith.
Q: What has been the most rewarding experience in your life journey?
A: I have really enjoyed standing in front of an audience and sharing my faith and declaring God‘s truth.
Q: What does SURVIVEiT®'s vision, “Creating a world free from the fear of cancer”, mean to you?
A: In the faith community, we have all heard the saying, “let go and let God”. I think there’s a misconception that once we give our problems over to God, we are just supposed to forget they exist and magically they go away. To me, giving everything to God means that no matter my circumstances, I continue my walk with God in faith. SURVIVEiT®’s vision allows me to understand that using my faith as the foundation for any treatments can allow me to do so without fear. He (God) is our refuge and strength. A strong faith can alleviate fear. You see, people of faith are going to be victorious no matter what. Embracing that truth is incredibly powerful!
