Michelle R. Hannah -- Author and Great Motivational Speaker
In 2004 I moved to Washington DC with a vision to change the world. I was 32 and diagnosed with carcinoma in si tu of the cervix. While being treated in DC, I was on a mission to educate about HPV and became very active in advocacy through testifying on Capitol Hill. I established several relationships with cancer organizations and pharmaceutical companies. The amazing part of this story is that I knew only one person in DC, had never lived on the east coast, and was ill. What a time to start a foundation. However I started Celebrate Life Foundation and nurtured it from two people in the organization to a board of 12 and several volunteers. In seven years we provided emotional and financial support to thousands of low income women with not only cervical cancer but all varieties of cancers. We participated in many conferences and partnered with numerous organizations to educate about HPV. I am proud of all our programs that continue to help many women nationally.
It’s funny how we can achieve many goals and receive many awards but pain has a way of minimizing all of that. I thought by completing my MBA I would be fulfilled or if I found true love I would be complete. After experiencing another health scare in 2010, every pain that I sought to hide surfaced. I had to face that I was a victim of domestic violence, molestation, a variety of illnesses, depression, and sadness from losing my father. All of these occurrences led me to feeling that my life was not worth living. I had always experienced breaking points but not all of them hitting me back to back or day to day.
The result is I had a breakdown. The only person that could reach me was my therapist who stated regularly that I was worth it and today was worth living. The journey was long but after many days of fighting to live, I woke up one day realizing that I was worth it and that my life had purpose. No matter what my past or pain, nothing and no one could stop My Purpose.
The result was this book ... my lifeline. My purpose saved my life. For if it were no purpose there would be no reason to exist. I sometimes recall negative predictions fed to me since birth. Yet today I am a life coach speaker and my purpose is stronger than any put down, set back or bleak medical prognosis.
My Story…My journey
My mother told me I would never develop into a healthy child. She said the doctor was amazed that I was walking and running by age two. Being a child actress, I dealt with rejection which impacted my self-worth. When you allow anyone to define who you are, you give up your control to make sound decisions. I grew up thinking that my life was worthless and the only happiness I ever had was helping others by giving financially and emotionally. Although admirable to have the spirit of giving, giving until it hurts is not the gift of giving. The true gift is knowledge of why you exist. You exist because of the purpose that God has for you. You are worthy because you were created for a specific purpose designed for you only.
