Survivor of stage IV throat and neck cancer, Denise DeSimone is a walking, talking, singing, speaking miracle. Denise DeSimone is an ordained Interfaith minister, and a sought after, rare keynote speaker who can reach any audience. From women's conferences, corporate conferences and retreats, as she has 30 years of corporate experience, to cancer support groups, spiritual centers and churches, to addressing inmates in a prison.

She has appeared on Inside Edition, FOX News: The Buckley Report, NBC's Daytime Show along with extensive international radio appearances and sang the National Anthem at Fenway Park in Boston, MA, not just once but twice.
In 2005, just days after riding her bicycle 87 miles in one day, as part of the Pan Mass Challenge, to raise money for children's cancer research, Denise was diagnosed with Stage IV throat and neck cancer. She was given three months to live. Doctors warned, should she live, she may never be able to sing again. Twenty-two months post diagnosis was when Denise stood at home plate at Boston's Fenway Park, and sang the National Anthem, for the first time, to a sell-out crowd of 37,000 Boston Red Sox fans.
Denise’s approach in dealing with a death sentence was very different than most. She chose to BEFRIEND, not BATTLE cancer. The rich life lessons of inspiration and usefulness to many are the reasons why she chose to author her book entitled, FROM STAGE IV TO CENTER STAGE. Denise weaves these lessons into her dynamic and heart-felt speeches, leaving people with rock-solid steps in how to live more fully in the moment, how to overcome adversity and how to reach deep inside to experience a deeper level of self love.
