Aurea’s passion for non profits and the heroes that volunteer their lives to them began after her grueling battle over Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Diagnosed on her birthday in 1999 and after invasive surgery and grueling chemotherapy, which almost killed her, the surgeon told her she’d never be able to speak above a faint whisper because they had to remove the left thoracic nerve to her vocal cord. They also removed half of her left lung, part of her right lung, the lining around her heart, her Thymus and disconnected half of her diaphragm. She has been cancer-free since 2000 and can speak again despite the grim diagnosis. Her miracle story was featured on The 700 Club TV show worldwide many times over.
Aurea faced many struggles in her life including the murder of her father when she was a teenager, spouse abuse, divorce, single motherhood, cancer and she wrote her autobiography book about how to overcome them staying positive and successful through it all, titled “I Won’t Survive, I’ll Thrive!”
She’s co-authored and has been featured in many self help books such as; Leading Women – 20 Influential Women Share Their Secrets to Leadership, Business, and Life, Insiders Tips 2, Reflections of Style – A Philanthropic Glance at the Arts, The Imagine Project – Over 40 inspirational true life stories, Multiple Streams of Income 1st edition – Direct Sales Success strategies and Manifest Success.
