Using his life-threatening and facially disfiguring cancer survival story as the platform that led him to a successful career in business, Terry Healey captivates and educates audiences on how to take control of their lives, identify and overcome challenges, build trust and teams, embrace change, and learn the value of tolerance and acceptance. He views the lessons he learned in life as gifts, and believes his greatest reward is being able to teach others how to overcome adversity and celebrate life.
Terry is a cancer survivor who endured over thirty surgical procedures in an effort to reconstruct his face, which was disfigured by a fibrosarcoma. In his latest memoir titled At Face Value: My Triumph Over a Disfiguring Cancer Terry relays lessons in courage and hope.
Terry has been published in Guideposts Magazine, The San Francisco Chronicle, Psychology Today, CURE Today, and Sales and Marketing Management. He is also a contributing author of Reading Lips, released in 2008, Make Your Own Miracle: Surviving Cancer, released in November 2004, and a contributing author of Open My Eyes, Open My Soul released in December, 2003.
Terry has appeared on ABC’s “Sunday on Seven” with Cheryl Jennings, Total Living TV Network with Jerry Rose, KTVU/Fox 2 “Mornings on 2” with Ross McGowan, and appeared on over 75 radio stations across the U.S. Also a professional speaker, Terry regularly presents to corporate sales professionals, medical professionals, and students.
Navigating Life’s Road Blocks: Attitude, Focus, and Teamwork

Turning Points and Survivor Kits
Through some personal storytelling, Terry conveys the importance of taking note of ‘potential’ turning points in life and how to ensure that you create your own personal survival kit that will help you with career challenges, personal discovery, or physical challenges that may change the way you interact with others.
Dealing With Adversity and Taking Control of Your Life
Based on Terry’s extreme experience with adversity in his own life, Terry shares with us the lessons he learned about how to deal with adversity and how being focused and taking control of your life are the keys to making those difficulties not only tolerable but also valuable in our personal growth and development. Terry encourages the audience to confront things head on and to embrace, rather than fear our world that is constantly changing.
Embracing Our Differences
Terry focuses this interactive presentation on how truly different each and every one of us is, and demonstrates how we frequently make judgments of people that are oftentimes incorrect. Participants will walk away with a better appreciation for why we need to embrace diversity and strive to be more tolerant.
