Luci Berardi is an ovarian cancer survivor, author and speaker. Luci was diagnosed in October 2010 with Stage IV Ovarian Cancer at the age of 42. After going through a hysterectomy with debulking and the convention regimen of chemotherapy, Luci remains cancer free. This journey was the inspiration for Luci to write a book about her trials, mental state and triumph over this diagnosis. The use of conventional, alternative and spiritual therapies were paramount in her recovery. She provides hope and a renewal of Faith for the patient, the spouse and family members and friends who walk a similar journey.
Luci is an advocate for raising awareness of this disease. She currently speaks to third-year medical students at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Department and is very involved with the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA). She is also affiliated with Imerman Angels–a one-on-one cancer support network for other women in the depths of their own fight.
Her book, Chasing Rainbows, will be released September 1, 2012.
