LISA'S BIO

Life with Lisa Bradshaw began as a radio show in 2008. In 2011, Lisa released her second book, Big Shoes: A Young Widowed Mother’s Memoir, and founded The DON’T WAIT Project®⏤a 501c3 non profit organization committed to raising community awareness about how positive life choices can impact the health and welfare of individuals, organizations and communities.


Lisa is a mother, widow, 24-year cancer survivor, author and TEDx speaker. Lisa has built a career as a storyteller by seeking the balance between what she's lost throughout the medical crises in her family and what can be gained from the lessons learned⏤before, during and after these experiences.


She's received rave reviews for her keynotes: How Surviving Cancer and Navigating My Husband’s Death Helped Save My Mother’s Life; My Red Plastic Typewriter and the Lessons It's Taught Me About Life; My Red Plastic Typewriter and the Lessons It's Taught Me About Business; and Living the Nouns in Life: What’s Your DON’T WAIT Story? 


Lisa hosts a television talk show and travels the country interviewing people who are living their own DON’T WAIT story. She also produces webinars, trainings and breakout sessions on what she has termed as Empathetic Healthcare Practices™. Her work as a patient advocate educator is endorsed by leading physicians throughout the country.


Lisa has been a guest on national television and radio, and her story has been featured in multiple print media outlets and online, including Oprah.com, The Rachael Ray Show, Oprah Radio, InStyle, Parents, Positive Impact Magazine, The Good Life, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Power Moms and more.

INSPIRATION

PATIENT ADVOCACY

PATIENT ADVOCACY

  •  As a radio and television host for more than a decade, Lisa has developed the powerful skill of getting to the heart of a story and producing quality content through her books, television show and keynotes.
  • Lisa helps audiences identify and pursue their own DON'T WAIT story by focusing on the nouns in life: the people, places, things and ideas we sometimes give up on along the way.
  • When speaking at colleges and corporate events, Lisa shares how her dream of becoming an author didn't pay the bills when she became a widowed single mom, so she built a career that enabled her to feed her kid and feed her soul and be home by 3 o' clock everyday when he got home from school. From the red plastic typewriter Lisa received as a Christmas gift from her parents when she was 8 years old and the movie that set her on a path as a storyteller to the product she designed for the set of the hit show Friends and her gigs on radio and television, Lisa has carved her own path and helps inspire other people to do the same.
