Roslyn was born to two brave and unlikely survivors of World War II. While her father was captured by the Japanese and had to fight for his life as a Prisoner of War, her mother was taken by the Nazis to endure the horrors of Auschwitz and ten other concentration camps in Nazi Europe. Remarkably, John survived the Nagasaki atomic bomb and Sonja miraculously escaped death in the gas chambers on three separate occasions.

When told at 29 of the tumour resting on the main artery to her brain testing positive for cancer, Roslyn quickly turned toward her parents’ examples of daring, determination, and 'NEVER GIVE UP' attitude that got them through the war as inspiration in her own fight to beat cancer and become a long-term survivor.

How did her parents survive captivity and all the life setbacks that followed? How did they meet? What profound life lessons did Roslyn learn from her parents unforgettable story and her own cancer journey that we can all learn from to live a better and more courageous life? The answers to these questions and more are what drive the story behind Roslyn's newest book and inspirational multi-media stage presentation, MEANT TO BE: A True Story of Might, Miracles and Triumph of the Human Spirit.

Then ten years after surviving cancer, age 39 at her heaviest weight and concerned for her health, Roslyn decided to fight back once again - only this time to win her battles with food, stress and lifestyle challenges, once and for all!

How did she lose the weight? How does she continue to keep it off? In what ways has changing her eating, thinking and lifestyle habits changed her life in ways that go far beyond just the number on the scale or size of her clothes? The answers to these questions and more drive the stories and life-changing strategies found in Roslyn's inspirational self-help book and healthy living presentation, THE A LIST: 9 Guiding Principles for Healthy Eating and Positive Living.

Roslyn speaks passionately about her empowering journey from fear to fight, worrier to warrior and victim to victory in the face of the life-threatening cancer that changed her life. She provides an unforgettable experience for her audiences with her personal stories, practical insights and proven strategies to live a courageous life in the face of change, challenge and adversity.

With her masterful combination of wisdom and humour, she shares the discoveries about herself, life and the influence of her parents that helped her beat cancer and conquer her challenges with stress, weight and lifestyle issues, once and for all.

Roslyn provides keynotes, workshops and presentations to a variety of audiences including corporations, associations, non-profits, cancer centers, cancer patient and survivor groups, hospitals, schools and other groups. See Sample Client List.
