"Dr. Lise Deguire captivated our audience in the telling of her courageous journey from tragic childhood accident to triumphant giver of hope.  Her life stands as the ultimate example of resiliency; the ability to experience negative events and yet maintain a sense of wellbeing.


Her delivery invites the audience to experience her emotions with her.  Absent seems to be the “why me?” that can cripple so many when dealing with despair and neglect.  One member commented, “The most inspiring life story of resurrection from near death.  A life lesson for all of us.” Dr. Deguire reminds us that grief and joy are not so far apart if you have the courage to face them fully.  I wholeheartedly recommend the experience of hearing this moving story."
