Compassionate Friends committee member Carol Owen stated: "We are so excited to have Mike come speak at this important fundraiser. Mike is so nice, and I was impressed with him when we met six years ago. His positive thinking has helped me in many ways. He is just amazing, and we expect a sold-out crowd - so help us by buying a few tickets and come hear Mike's talk!"
