15 Minutes of Fame
I have loved this break from chemo (a vacation & a mostly stable scan result!!) but I’m back to work now, writing this from the chemo room.
I wanted to let you know of a few very exciting things coming up and I’d love for you to watch, listen, and maybe even learn something!
First, I’m in the Survivor Spotlight on Stupid Cancer’s Radio Show on Monday night! This show has over 50,000 listeners, so I’d love YOU to be one of them! I’ll be on live (eek!) at 7 pm Central. Can’t listen live? A podcast will be available! Some really awesome people, Matthew Zachary, and Annie Goodman host the show and really big names, young adult survivor and chef Eric Levine (Winner of “Chopped” on the Food Network) and Hans Rueffert (author and proprietor at The Woodbridge in NC) will also be on the show! More details on how to listen here.
Then on Friday, the 8th, I’m honored to be one of the ten presenters at Pecha Kucha CU at Parkland College’s Parkhill Applied Technology Center. It’s FREE and doors open at 7:30 pm. Starting at 8:20 pm, there will be 5 presentations, a beer break (yay!) and then the last 5 presentations followed by an after party with Ryan Goff! Each presenter will be speaking for 6 minutes and 40 seconds and the topics are totally varied (Extreme Paintball, Ideas and How Not to Have Them, Information Apocalypse and more!) My bio: Two years ago Jennifer Smith decided she could no longer compete in her quest to become the next Super Woman. She hung up her cape, left her dream job, and focused on being a Professional Cancer Patient and mom to her 6 year old son dubbed “her favorite.” During this time, Jennifer has discovered even greater super powers…and it’s all about Learning to Live Legendary.
Everything you need to know (directions, parking, presenter’s subjects and bios) can be found here.
Then Sunday the 10th is the UI Women’s Pink Basketball game. Wear pink and join the Fighting Illini at 1 pm at the Assembly Hall! Admission is just $5 and there is going to be an amazing performance at half time, you won’t want to miss it!

So, back to work with chemo and then my 15 minutes of fame with the Stupid Cancer Radio Show, Pecha Kucha, and the pink game! Then I’ll hibernate and sleep for days to recharge. Watch, listen and I’d love to know what you learn!
