Vegas was a success! Thank you @generalelectric for having me and allowing me to share my story with your team. What a warm and beautiful audience! Oh and thanks @giannetos for your great paparazzi photo of the Gorg braid you gave me today!
Thank you @themmrf for allowing me to share my story last night&for all the amazing work you are doing. Their founder Kathy is a unicorn -after being told she had maybe 3 years when diagnosed w/multiple myeloma ...she went to work& created a new model all cancer foundations will follow to accelerate much needed medicines and cures. 20 years later she is here and doing well & helping so many who were hopeless have hope & live longer! She is my hero& I’m so excited to work with you @kathy.giusti to help make a difference in brain cancer. @bonniehunt_real was an amazing mistress of ceremonies &the warmest human ever.the video you will see is a clip of my speech where I speaking about the letters I wrote & had my friend distribute while in surgery. I wanted my parents to know I was going to pursue a very different life in this part 2. And they may not be able to brag about me in the ways they did before. My number one priority was going to be my health&happiness. I was dying to just be me& not cave to the pressures of who “I’m supposed to be...or “how much money I’m supposed to make.” I still get emotional...& so happy that I chose this path! Special thanks to the four seasons employee who brought me tissues right after this! So kind!

This is a long overdue post to honor a very important woman we recently lost. I had the privilege of interviewing Dame Daphne Sheldrick while I was covering a story for Nightly News with my producer Marisa. Seeing the incredible work she did to save the lives of elephants—many of which lost their mothers to poachers, was a life changing experience. Daphne spent 28 years perfecting a special milk formula that matched in nutrition and taste to their mothers milk in order to bottle-feed baby elephants. She was a one of a kind woman whose legacy will continue to live on through generations of elephants to come. @dswt
