Ok, so if I ever say “I don’t love my job,” just slap me. I’ve gotta be the luckiest guy with the best job in the world.
Check out this amazing email from a wonderful Michigan woman who was in one of my audiences last year and saw my motivational speaker keynote. When I went back to this organization this year (it was Pure Romance) she approached me and told me the most amazing story about how some of the humor tips we talked about last year had helped her and her family. She wrote it up into an email, and (with her permission) we post her note here.
Brad, You were one of our speakers for our training seminar last weekend. You asked me to send you my story. Well you asked for it so here it is:
Last year I purchased two of your little Share Your Sense Of Humor Kits, the ones with the clown nose and the security tag in it. One for me and one for my dad. He is a funny man just like you. He loved it. Well last October he was diagnosised with small cell lung cancer.
Since then, every time we go to the hospital, regardless of a doctors appointment or a chemo round he is wearing one of your little “gadgets.” To say the least not only is he keeping everyone laughing he is also keeping his attitude as well as his spirits up. Thank you so much! The doctors tell us that he would have not made it this far if he did not have such a great attitude.
Your products have and still are making dealing with terminal cancer a little easier. Thank you again. And if you happen to have any overstocks, I know of quite a few nurses at the hospital that could use your nose’s to make people smile! Thanks again!
—Sandi B. (From Michigan)
What else can I say, besides that I’m blown away and totally flattered. Sandi, you keep on girl! You made my day. (And quite a bit more.) Thanks so much. I’m blown away.

Need Help! I am a retired oncology nurse. I am searching for the name of a man who upon learning of his cancer dx or prognosis, closed himself in a hotel room with all the humorous videos he could find. He was adamant that this overdose of humor cured his cancer. This occurred before the internet and I think
he wrote a book which I could search for if I had his
My current patient could benefit from reading his book.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
