Meet Christine Handy


Christine Handy is a speaker, author and breast cancer survivor. Her harrowing experience of debilitating illness and triumph uplifts and inspires audiences of all types. Her personal journey from a world of superficiality to a world of friendship, loyalty and love encourages her listeners to be their best selves in all aspects of life. Christine’s motto: There is always purpose in pain.

Christine’s challenges with illness and cancer led her to write her first novel, Walk Beside Me, which immediately became a best seller and is now in its second publishing. It is a beautifully written story of one woman’s descent into the darkest depths of self-pity and depression and her ultimate ascent into a bright new day of power, self-confidence and happiness.

As an internationally accomplished model, Christine has been featured in campaigns for brands such as Guess, J. Crew, J. C. Penney, Bud Light, Pepsi, Petco, and Target. She has appeared as a breast cancer advocate and expert on many radio and television programs including Fox News Radio. Her story has been highlighted in publications such as Healing Touch, Town & Style, Inner Realm, American Volksport, The Art of Healing, Kindred Spirit and Outreach Magazine.

Christine is passionate about empowering women. Her goals include serving as a spokesperson, speaker and ambassador for cancer-related causes. Hosting a podcast focusing on friendship among women is only one of many ways Christine has chosen to contribute and share her renewed passion for living. She also serves on the board of Ebeauty, a charitable wig exchange program dedicated to improving the quality of life for women undergoing chemotherapy treatments.

Christine is the mother of two amazing sons and lives in Miami, Florida. She is currently traveling nationwide for speaking engagements and writing her next book, a sequel to Walk Beside Me.
