Find The Humor
A Happy “laff-attitude” helped me survive cancer – My Journey of Hope and Humor.
Have you ever laughed until you cried? Cried until you laughed?
needed block of humor surrounding the covid crisis calling it ‘covid humor’ – “Did self quarantine caused your LuLu Lemons to look like LuLu Grapefruits?!”
“Early detection equals prevention.” As a breast cancer speaker Diana emphasizes the importance of stress reduction as well as the critical nature of following a good nutritional plan, having more fun, being socially active, accepting your new normal and ‘finding the funny’ in life in general. ‘Humor is all around us! Pay attention to your life! It’s talking to you! Take a cue from that great philosopher poet, Ferris Bueller: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Indeed! We all need to make an appointment with ourselves to have more fun and love. Do we need a book called,” Cancer Etiquette for Dummies.”
“You have to find the humor in all situations in life- it can literally save it. Example: A couple of weeks after my mastectomy a friend’s brother said to me, ‘I’m so sorry you had cancer, believe me, I understand. My mother’s older sister had a vasectomy!” Did he really say that! Oh yes, he did. Ya gotta laugh!
Cancer patients, survivors, and their families are such special people and are so very grateful to all the wonderful healthcare workers that strive to try to make their life a little easier. With this disease on the rise Diana finds herself in high demand as not only a breast cancer survivor speaker but also a cancer Speaker in general. “People do not realize how many different kinds of cancers there are. She shares her experiences and the effects it has had on her as a patient and survivor as well as on family and friends.”
Diana shares how she works diligently at prevention.
Even though such a serious subject audiences will laugh through her “Oops” moments with Tom Cruise when she appeared in the hit movie “Jerry Maguire”. They will share an “Oopsrah” moment while she performed her comedy routine on the Oprah Winfrey show and what it was like to date and what she learned about how important laughter is in our lives from Robin Williams.
Diana leaves audiences with laughter and a more positive way to deal with this difficult situation.

The Bangor Region YMCA hired Diana Jordan in September 2021 as a virtual presenter for our Annual Caring Connections Retreat for women survivors of breast cancer.
She is funny, engaging, and allows her compassion to shine in the stories she tells and the comedy she shares. She is a positive person who believes in the power of laughter and this came through loud and clear! Even virtually!
We would highly recommend her!
