Episode 92: Donna Deegan

Donna Deegan is the Founder of the Donna Marathon in Jacksonville, Florida. She is the mother of two and a three-time survivor of breast cancer. In 1999, she began her battle, with recurrences in 2002 and 2007. She is the founder of The Donna Foundation, which provides the necessary funds to care for local women living with breast cancer. They are doing incredible things at the Donna Foundation and you’ll get to hear all about that in this episode. Donna is the author of two books and a former weekday television anchor on First Coast News at WTLV/WJXX.

In this episode of the podcast, we talk about the Donna Marathon (I’m running it in February – can’t wait!), but the biggest portion of this conversation is focused on the power of positive thinking and actively working toward living a life full of gratitude everyday. There were so many times in the episode that I wanted to just stop and take notes. It’s one of the messages that reinforces what’s really important in life.

So the question you’ll walk away asking yourself is “What are you going to do about living?”

    Loved this interview! I’m so bummed because I’m already heading to Jax 2 weeks before the race.
