From Chicken Soup for the Cancer Survivor's Soul

Who Is Beverly Kirkhart?

Beverly Kirkhart knows what it means to live everyday to its fullest. Facing personal and professional hardships, as well as overcoming breast cancer eight years ago, she now shares the wisdom of her experiences in her heart-to-heart speaking engagements. Beverly has been a keynote speaker at universities and colleges, nonprofit organizations, corporations and hospitals across the country. She’s been on national radio and television delivering her message of “tuning setbacks into comebacks!” She is the author of the wildly acclaimed, My Healing Companion, a revealing self-guided journal designed to help those dealing with cancer become their own heroes.

Beverly delivers a powerful message with a personal touch. She identifies ways a person can stay strong, productive and upbeat during challenging times and beyond. From self-discovery to meditation, to asking for and giving support—and more—Beverly offers practical and proven ways professionals, caregivers, cancer patients, and others can turn their setbacks into comebacks and emerge as strong more positive people.

Beverly is the president and a founding member of the Breast Resource Center of Santa Barbara, along with Dr. Susan Love, a renowned surgeon and author of Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book. She has dedicated her time in the development of several projects, which give hope and inspiration to those struggling with life-threatening disease. These include the first “Body-Mind-Spirit” program, sponsored by Cottage Hospital, featuring Dr. Carl Simonton and “The Looking Good, Feeling Good,” fashion show sponsored by the American Cancer Society and Nordstrom.

Beverly, a Santa Barbara residence, loves life and finds enjoyment in both her work and play. She is an avid bicyclist, equestrian rider and skier.
