Ali Gilmore

Patient Leader

In the summer of 2010 I was working my 15th year in technology, feeling burnt out and pretty middle aged. If you’d told me then that in the four years to follow, I would face and survive stage IV colon cancer, author a book and blog that would make people laugh while inspiring them to fight this disease, become a sports photographer with a highlight of covering David Beckham’s final US match at the 2012 MLS Cup, write and perform over 30 original songs and record a full length CD, I would’ve thought you were some kind of twisted Tony Robbins wannabe. Well, this has been my life to date - I kid you not. I am here to inspire others to dust off their own dreams and set them back in motion.
