“If anybody needs to be inspired to get up when you’ve been kicked down, and say thank you to whoever or whatever gave you the boot, I’m your speaker!” – Amelia Frahm
With a professional career that began when she was hired to convince South Texans to build a nuclear power plant in their backyard, Amelia Frahm has survived and can speak with candor on just about anything.
She is an expert at tackling contentious topics and putting them in a format that both children and adults find entertaining as well as educational.
Amelia has appeared on radio and TV segments across the country and has been a member of the National Cancer Survivors Day Speaker’s Bureau since 2002.

Excerpts from some of Amelia’s speaking events:
“The hometown hero (me) got shoved off her pedestal by terrorism and I was no where near New York City, I was in Minnesota.” Womens Health & Fitness Expo, Minneapolis, MN.
“Never say never. When I was in college I was so shy I took a failing grade rather than get up in front of my class and introduce myself. Well here I am– and pretty much everything I said I’d never–I’ve done, been or married.” HOLLA Literacy Festival, Wadesboro, NC
“In Tickles Tabitha’s Cancer-tankerous Mommy, I portrayed the Mommy as irritable, mean, and moody or as the real Tabitha would tell you, just like her real Mom, only nicer.” Longaberger Horizon of Hope Luncheon, Cedar Rapids, IA
“To survive cancer I had to take my medicine, the same can be said for marketing a children’s book, only instead of a pill I had to swallow humiliation, rejection, and my pride.” 3M, Hutchinson, MN
“It was like finding out I had breast cancer at age 34, only this time instead of crying hysterically I laughed hysterically.” FOX 10, Mobile, AL
“…they were visiting the nuclear plant waiting for a spaceship that was supposed to drop by and refuel. Nothing I could make up about my experience at a South Texas Nuclear Plant could be as farfetched as the truth.” Ridgewater College, Hutchinson, MN
“One year I was in the audience, afraid to raise my hand to ask a question, the next year I was the guest speaker.” Mom’s Writers Talk Radio, Higley, AZ
“A victim fears tomorrow, a survivor lives life as if there is no tomorrow-despite her fears.” National Cancer Survivor’s Day, Winston-Salem, NC
