In May 2008, Jane SpottedBird was diagnosed with stage IV cancer. Her doctor gave her 6 to 12 months to live with no hope of survival. In October 2009, her doctor was astounded and said, “She is a miracle.” Today she is cancer free.
SpottedBird will share her healing experience with patrons and guests at the Jackson County Public Library at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 1. She believes her story might inspire others – those who are well and want to stay well, or those who are fighting a life-threatening condition, or those who need to be spiritually renewed. Spotedbird will talk about her incredible journey and about all the things she learned along the way.
These experiences have inspired her to write a book titled, Still Here: Dancing to the Beat of My own Drum. This book is the story of hope and transformation. Copies of this book will be available for purchase following SpottedBird’s presentation.
Having lived and traveled all over the continental U.S., Jane and her teenage son have made their home in Bryson City. Jane is a former educator. She was teaching at the Job Corps Center in Franklin when her cancer was diagnosed. The program is part of the library’s community outreach series and is free to the public. Please call the library at 828.586.2016 for more information.
