Roger Cawthon, former CNN sportscaster and award-winning author and photographer Kathy Cawthon are dedicated to fighting cancer with hope and humor.
Roger and Kathy provide encouragement and support to cancer survivors, their family members and friends, and the medical professionals who care for them by offering a comprehensive series of uplifting programs.
Diagnosed with cancer within six weeks of each other, and following more than a year of aggressive cancer treatments, this dynamic husband-and-wife team celebrated their survival by completing the grueling 26.2-mile Marine Corps Marathon.
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face…You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
“When we were diagnosed with cancer, we knew we had to become fighters,” says Kathy. “We adopted a warrior mentality, so running – and, by the way, we use that term very loosely! – the Marine Corps Marathon was a logical way to celebrate our survival. The whole experience felt like the beginning of a crusade, a very personal crusade against cancer.
The Cawthon’s are firm believers in the healing powers of hope and humor. Healthy recipes and inspirational survivor stories, jokes and cartoons and much, much more.
Their presentations bring in rave reviews from medical professionals, survivors and caregivers alike. Their frankly hilarious take on the world of medicine blends seamlessly with a powerful message that energizes and inspires audiences to laugh, love and live in the moment every moment. Whether you are looking for an educational and entertaining keynote for a medical conference or an uplifting and hilarious presentation for a cancer survivor celebration, you will want to include The Cancer Crusade in your plans.
Note to Meeting Planners: The Cancer Crusade’s goal is to make you look good!
