Totally agree with Annette as a standup comedian and author myself. Her story is so inspiring.
We have a non profit organization called Life Renewing Center. We offer laughter as the best medicine humor therapy.
It is a wonderful tool to help us forget sufferings.
Laugh more...

I personally know Annette and I can tell you she really talks the walk. She is one giant smile - for everyone. As a 3 time cancer survivor I agree with Annette 100%.

I don't know Annette but I know Margaret (who commented)and they are two peas in a pod. Pleasanton is attracting heros, authors and all around spectacular humanitarians. I'd love to meet Annette, but in the meantime, I'm going to Town Center to buy her book(s) and forward this article to several friends going through hard times who could use some cheering up from some one special like Annette. Thanks Annette - you are a local treasure!
