Bestselling Author Discusses Second Chance at Love at Fresh Paint Gallery Tomorrow Night!

On Thursday (2/27) at 6PM, Nancy Sharp--bestselling author of BOTH SIDES NOW: A True Story of Love, Loss, and Bold Living--talks about resilience and moving forward at the Fresh Paint Gallery -- 5835 W Washington Blvd.
 

"I ADORE this story because it speaks to something so important in being healthy, which is RESILIENCE. Nancy could have become stuck in her sadness but decided to move forward instead. That takes COURAGE, which can be scary, but it can really contribute to the good life." 

 --Dr. Mehmet Oz (on Nancy's essay in the premiere issue of DR. OZ, THE GOOD LIFE."

On the very day that Nancy delivered premature twins, she learned that her husband’s brain cancer returned after eighteen months in remission.  Less than three years later, at the age of 37, she became a widow. But while many in that situation would crumble, Nancy had an innate ability to hold life and death in the same moment. Seeking the solace of the Rocky Mountains and a fresh start, Nancy packed up her five year-old twins and left Manhattan for Denver, never imagining that she would find love in the pages of a magazine.  But after reading an article on eligible bachelors, Nancy sent an email to Steve Saunders, a popular Denver television anchor turned political candidate as well as a widower who’d lost his wife to cancer, and was raising two sons a decade older than Nancy’s twins. Today they have been married for five years.  In BOTH SIDES NOW, Nancy shares her unforgettable journey – one that offers enlightened understanding for living life to the fullest.  Her story is a gift to those looking to lift themselves from the embers of loss and adversity through bold living.

Last Friday marked the tenth anniversary of Nancy's husband Brett's death.  In his honor, she wrote an essay on Stand Up 2 Cancer's blog, Keep Going. We believe in you. In it she said, "Among all the lessons borne from losing my husband to cancer, the one I see clearest is this: The best way to memorialize a loved one is to choose life."  Her message of resilience clearly resonated, getting more than 100,000 hits in just a few hours.  I hope you'll come see Nancy in person tomorrow night!
