The Berklee Women's Collective invites you to hear Berklee staff member, Maria Judge, share her story and presentation, titled, "Healing, Humor and Holding Down the Fort: Lessons Learned in Illness and in Health."
Maria Judge, business administrator in the Admissions and Scholarship Offices and a member of the Berklee Women's Collective Agenda Committee, tells the surprisingly humorous story of how she balanced life, work and healing during a year of cancer treatment. The program includes her photo-essay, "Toxic, Tattooed and Tougher than Margaret Thatcher: Chronicle of a Year with Cancer", which the Boston Globe said reveals "the poignancy, as well as the unexpected humor, of being treated for cancer."
