Edward Elmhurst Cancer Survivor Celebration Day

“Conor Cunneen was absolutely amazing! His presentation on The Gift of GAB (Goals, Attitude, Behavior) set the perfect tone for our annual Cancer Survivors’ Day celebration. His talk was engaging, light-hearted, fun and entertaining. Our cancer survivors and their guests were full of laughter and smiles and Conor made our event a great success. Afterwards, he generously took time to speak to all our guests making it the perfect end to a perfect evening. Conor was a pleasure to work with and I would wholeheartedly recommend him as a speaker.”

Cancer is not funny, but Cancer Survivor Motivational Speaker and humorist – IrishmanSpeaks Conor Cunneen has developed an inspirational, fun-packed keynote speech about his two bouts of cancer – Thyroid and Prostate.

It is probably only a Chicago-based Irishman who could develop a keynote titled “It’s Just a Flesh Wound” that will leave cancer survivors and caregivers with a smile on the face and a spring in the step.

On his prostate cancer diagnosis, this inspirational speaker says, “There are a number of treatment options available ranging from radiation to prostatectomy, in other words the removal of the prostate,” he said in his light lyrical brogue.

Prostate cancer develops slowly so the former Marketing VP had time to consider his options. “I did a lot of research on the topic, spoke to a lot of people and ultimately opted for the prostatectomy. My information systems, i.e., my wife, advised I had to purchase new pajamas for the hospital, so that is why I entered Northwestern Memorial Hospital with pajamas bearing the Monty Python legend ‘It’s Just a Flesh Wound.’

I’ve been blessed with a great attitude and I believe every cloud does have a silver lining. As a result, I created a keynote of the same title. It is perfect for all conferences and events where an uplifting feel-good message is appropriate, which is basically everywhere.”

This is Cunneen’s second bout with cancer. “I had thyroid cancer some years ago when living back in Ireland. The whipped that out as well. I tell my audiences when I keynote that having had a prostatectomy and a thyroidectomy, I now have a unique Irish condition called ‘there’s not much left-o-me.’”
