(Not yes or no answers). See below for some general topic ideas. Remember our quests want to learn something that they can use. We will allow some time at the end to promote your services or products.

(Due to life event?) • What are some of the greatest challenges you face in doing your work • What are the greatest blessings in it? • Describe in detail how your product or service benefits the cancer community (this could take a great deal of our program – which is fine)
