Jan Hasak is a motivational speaker and author. At seminars, support groups, church events, and businesses she shares how she maintains a “cancer thriver” attitude. As an attorney at a leading biotechnology firm, she wrote patents for over 20 years. Her first book, Mourning Has Broken: Reflections on Surviving Cancer, chronicles her journey through two bouts with breast cancer. Her second book, The Pebble Path: Returning Home from a Forest of Shadows, is an inspirational allegory interlaced with poetry that traces her walks through cancer. The Pebble Path will resonate with any reader whose life has been interrupted by malignancy or who works in a cancer-related field.

A wife and mother, Jan is faced with a cancer crisis while raising three young boys, working full time, and teaching Sunday school. This intensely personal story chronicles how the Lord sustained her and her family through two bouts with cancer.
