I met Suzanne Lindley under a year ago at the Lance Armstrong Foundation Summit in Columbus. She inspires me to be a better person each and every day (see 11/28 post). I had the pleasure of traveling to Chicago this past weekend and attending The Liver Symposium, a conference she poured her heart and soul into the past months, along with fellow Orange Monarch Pam Schmid.
Below are excerpts from some of Suzanne’s inspiring reflections post symposium:
The ripples of this symposium will spread and soon we won’t even be able to understand the reach and the breath and the depth of our endeavor, but with us we will carry the knowledge that somehow, somewhere – someone else will know that there are often untold options. And the ripples will continue to grow…We provide hope when we share our stories. My story makes a difference. Your stories make a difference, too…I am determined that this will change and know that WE are the ones that can make the difference!!! So I challenge you – be the difference.
We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand –Randy Pausch
Be the change you wish to see in the world –Ghandhi
