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.
