Telesummit Night One

Rochelle Togo-FigaRochelle Togo-Figa is a sales consultant and motivational speaker from New York State. A breast cancer survivor herself, she is now holding a series of teleconferences for other women each night this week at 8:00 PM EST. She states her goal is to help survivors thrive and live well.

I listened to tonight's call. The first guest to be interviewed was Donna Deegan, a Florida news anchor, and non-profit founder, who is best known for organizing the first breast cancer marathon. Donna is a polished pro at communications, and shared her story, which includes having been diagnosed with cancer three times, including a distant metastasis.

Deegan explained that part of her treatment included visiting a integrative doctor, and embracing meditation. She encouraged her fellow survivors to take time every day for peace and to chose love over fear.

The second speaker was Gina Andrews, who is a breast cancer advocate from Sacramento, California. She has worked with several local charities, and now has a website, which focuses on awareness for young women. Gina was diagnosed just days after having a baby, and talked about how tough it was to go through chemotherapy with a newborn.

Togo-Figa is approaching the breast cancer community from a unique angle, and it will be interesting to see how she is received. As sales trainer who charges for her workshops, she is now looking to create similar motivational programs for survivors. She is planning a day long session for June 26, in New York City, which will cost $97 to attend.

She says that this type of program is important because after treatment women still need help in transforming their lives.
