SHANNON MILLER SPEAKS AT THE OSMA ANNUAL MEETING

sm_1 sm_2

Big things come in small packages….as those who attended the OSMA 2014 Annual Meeting CME on April 11, 2014, found out. The evening started with a few words from Terry Cline, PhD, Oklahoma Commissioner of Health who introduced Timothy Holder, MD, OSMA ARC Chair and Quality of Life Physician at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  Dr. Holder then gave a special introduction for our guest speaker, Gold Medal Olympic Gymnast, Shannon Miller.  OSMA was proud to have as sponsors for this event PLICO, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, St. Francis Hospital, and Wilshire Pennington. We were honored to have with us Olympic Champion, Shannon Miller who spoke on “Competing With Cancer.” What really set the stage for her presentation was a video of her winning Gold Medal performance!  When her petite frame stepped up to the podium, no one had any idea she was going to blow them away with her amazing story.  She brought everyone to tears. She touched the hearts of everyone in attendance.

She was so natural and down to earth.  She is for real and her story is real.  The take away points that Shannon presented was no matter how strong, or how in control you think you are, God is in control of everything. What she didn’t know was that God had been preparing her all of her life for this journey with ovarian cancer. With her struggles to win the Gold at the Olympics, she was being prepared to face other challenges in her life.  She shared her story so that those in the audience who thought she was just an “Olympic Champion” knew she was much more than that. Shannon encourages everyone to stay healthy, eat healthy, and exercise to stay fit because we never know what the future holds for us.  Her message of strength, courage, hope and perseverance, gave each of us encouragement.

Shannon is an amazing lady and we were all so very fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet her and share this time with her.  Her presentation was a “memorable experience”.  Thank you Shannon, you truly are an amazing young lady!
