PRLog - June 16, 2010 - RICHMOND, Va. -- What does a young mother of three do when she finds out she has breast cancer? She becomes her own superhero.
Meet Suzy Survivor, who encourages people to glove up, climb into the ring, and fight their own Big Lifetime Challenges to a knockout.
The brainchild of Alden Rice, a Virginia woman who faced a breast cancer diagnosis in her 30s and managed treatment while continuing to care for her husband and three young children, Suzy Survivor makes appearances at community and business events to help people discover how to become their own superheroes when facing adversity and challenge.
"When I was facing my big challenge - breast cancer - I felt like I needed to become Super Me to manage it all," says Rice. "Suzy was who showed up when I was at my weakest and most vulnerable, who encouraged me to keep fighting. Now I'm working hard to help others find their 'superhero within' since that approach was so hugely helpful for me."
Suzy Survivor is available for speaking engagements throughout the US - a portion of her speaking fee is donated to Beyond Boobs, a non-profit organization that helps young women diagnosed with breast cancer deal with treatment and its aftermath.
