About Lorraine's speaking services


Lorraine began her speaking career in 2004, following the publication of her book ‘Lean on Me’ Cancer through a Carer’s Eyes; an inspirational true account of her husband’s courageous battle with cancer and of her emotional journey as she cares for him and comes to terms with the inevitability of his death.


Through her website, Lorraine’s books have gained global recognition resulting in several invitations to speak at conferences both nationally and internationally, including the Global Asbestos Congress, held in Tokyo Japan.


Speaking from personal experience, Lorraine’s unique style of delivery is a combination of insight and discussion into the practical and emotional issues faced by carer’s, along with reflection of her own caring journey through readings of her emotive poetry.


Tailoring her speech to suit her audience, Lorraine’s topics can include any or all of the following:


  • Asbestos exposure and the incidence of mesothelioma in Australia and around the world

  • Mesothelioma diagnosis

  • The emotional journey of the carer

  • Caring for loved ones with long term illness, cancer and terminal disease

  • The importance of pain management to quality of life

  • Discovering how you can make a difference

  • Understanding and coping with anticipatory grief

  • The power of positive thinking

  • Coping with grief after loss

  • Recital of a number of her emotive poems.
