What is Your Don’t Wait Story?

Lisa Bradshaw is a mother, 22-year cancer survivor, author, producer and founder of The DON’T WAIT Project®, a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to raising community awareness about how positive life choices can impact the health and welfare of individuals, organizations and communities. Bradshaw also hosts Life with Lisa Bradshaw, a television talk show focused on everyday people and everyday life.

Bradshaw founded the Project when writing her second book, Big Shoes: A Young Widowed Mother’s Memoir, after the tragic loss of her husband at age 35. Now, 14 years later, their grown son has left for college, and Bradshaw is focused on a different story while touring the country in teardrop trailer and interviewing people about their own DON'T WAIT stories.

“Hardships are opportunities for crossroads not an impasse in life,” Bradshaw says. "The Project is about true storytelling in all its heartache and triumph. And it’s what the DWP does best."

Bradshaw writes and speaks on topics ranging from motherhood to patient advocacy and entrepreneurship to organ donation registry. She has been a guest on national television and radio, including Oprah Radio and The Rachael Ray Show, and her story has been featured in New York Daily News, InStyle, Parents, Better Homes & Gardens and on
