Diane Ferlatte cannot explain how or why she is still here after being diagnosed with stage-4 colon cancer in February 2011. But she can explain what has made those intervening eight and a half years among the best years of her life—stories.
Internationally renowned storyteller, Diane Ferlatte has traveled the globe, from Europe to Singapore & Malaysia, from Australia & New Zealand to Colombia and Senegal, Kenya, South Africa, India, Jamaica, Turkey, and of course all over the United States. She believes that telling and listening to each other’s stories not only enables us to learn about each other, but also to understand each other better. She loves to tell stories that hold truths touching upon our common humanity.
